Former Student Sues School For Bullying Harassment | Advocate.com





A recent high school graduate
in Kansas has filed a lawsuit against the school district alleging that
school officials failed to protect him from bullying and harrassment he
suffered due to his perceived sexual orientation, reports KCTV5.com.

The
lawsuit filed by the unidentified man, who graduated from Blue Valley
High School in 2010, states, "Fellow male students repeatedly assault
(the plaintiff) in the school locker room and shower, such as rubbing
against him, nude, in the shower in a sexually aggressive manner,
pulling down his pants, exposing his genitals to other students,
snapping him on the buttocks with towels and spraying a full shampoo
bottle of urine on him while in the locker room shower."


KCTV reports "the graduate is suing the district,
principals, vice principals and other district employees. According to
the lawsuit, the young man attended Overland Trail Middle School from
2003-2006 and Blue Valley High School from 2006-2010."


The former student says he reported the abuse to teachers,
safety officers, and administrators, who either ignored the alleged
assault or their actions were "wholly inadequate and ineffective." He
also alleges that female students who were bullied were protected by
teachers and administrators, but he didn't receive the same protection
due to his gender and perceived sexual orientation.


The school district released a statement in response to the
lawsuit, saying, "While the district is diligently reviewing the
information, as a practice the district does not comment on pending
litigation. The safety and social well being of our students is a top
priority in every school and every classroom, every day."
