Sexual Harrassment: Introduction



Dr. Erma Jean Sims,
Sonoma State University

My name is Dr. Erma Jean Sims I'm a member of the faculty of the School of Education at Sonoma State University. I also hold a Juris Doctor degree in Law. It's important for teachers to understand their legal, ethical, and professional obligations in an educational setting. This legal session will focus on sexual harassment in schools and classrooms. Teachers in the State of California are legally responsible for complying with the state and federal laws on sexual harassment. Noncompliance can result in legal liability to you and to the school district in which you are employed.
