Abstract

The goal of this comment is to illustrate the need for courts to develop a uniform approach to remedying severe sexual harassment in the schools. The comment examines the recent split among the courts in their interpretation and application of Section 1983 and Title IX to peer sexual harassment claims. Recommendations are made to the courts for resolving the split and in particular, to expand and adopt a uniform standard of liability and to follow the Eleventh Circuit's standard for determining when peer sexual harassment is so severe as to require a remedy by the courts.
