In Cincinnati, the parents of an 8-year-old boy who hanged himself with a necktie in 2017 sought to hold the school responsible for the bullying he endured on premises. What’s more, the parents argued that the school’s officials knew of the bullying and failed to adequately react. While this subject is disturbing, controversial and tough to handle, schools need to be aware of the liabilities they face when it comes to bullying.
Facing these issues can help clear up any vagueness around responsibility and legal compliance.
