Teacher Abuse in Southern California

Abused by a Teacher or Other Trusted Adult?

For over ten years, Jeff Anderson & Associates and Anthony De Marco have helped more than 400 survivors get results for claims of child sexual abuse by trusted adults including: clerics, counselors, teachers, coaches, and their employers. While these numbers may seem incredible, studies and recent events in Los Angeles County schools point to many more children in Southern California who have suffered childhood sexual abuse in educational settings. If you or your child were abused by a teacher or school employee listed below, or by any other person in an educational setting, please don't hesitate to call us. We want to help you.

The Tragedy of Sexual Abuse in our Schools

Charol Shakeshaft, Department Chairperson and Professor of Educational Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Education, is the author of a comprehensive study of sexual abuse in educational settings. The study, conducted by Shakeshaft when she was a professor at Hofstra University, remains one of the most comprehensive analyses of the tragedy of sexual abuse in school systems across the United States.

Educator Sexual Abuse

By Professor Charol Shakeshaft

Educator Sexual Abuse Articles Molestation, rape, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, sexual harassment. These are words and phrases that are used to describe adult-to-student sexual abuse in schools, an act that I label “educator sexual abuse.” This article is a summary of a strand of research I have been conducting over the past decade, which has been funded by three grants from the U.S. Department of Education. During this time, I have collected data from students, parents, administrators, and teachers through one-one interviews and self-report surveys. I have performed secondary analyses of the AAUW Hostile Hallways data sets (1993 and 2001) and have examined news coverage and legal documents of alleged incidents of educator sexual abuse. This article summarizes selected findings from this inquiry.

Disclaimer: Even though settlements may have been awarded in these cases, many of the teachers, staff and/or organizations who settled or paid awards as a result of arbitration or trial, maintain they are not at fault.
