  • Abstract:

    English: The starting point for dealing with sexual harassment in schools would be to define sexual harassment and outline the behaviour that constitutes it. This article aims to define and describe the nature of learner sexual harassment in the secondary school setting and to discuss the criteria for sexual harassment. Because of the difference between harassment by educators and harassment by peers, this article will explore the specific nature of each. Finally, recommendations are made with regard to educator and learner sexual harassment training.
