New Landmark U.S. Court Decision Sets New Legal Standard On Bullied Students And IDEA Special Education Violations By Schools
A learning-disabled third-grader who was cruelly bullied by classmates at highly rated PS 6 on the Upper East Side was deprived of her educational rights — and the city must pay for her tuition at a private school, a top appellate court has ruled.
The landmark decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found that Principal Lauren Fontana “stonewalled” the girl’s parents, refusing to discuss the bullying or address it in her special-education plan.
The three-member appellate panel unanimously upheld a ruling by federal Judge Jack Weinstein that the city Department of Education violated the US Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
Dale Yeager Forensic Profiler and costar of the new History Channel series ‘True Monsters’, has published a new Amazon Kindle book for parents entitled “3 Myths About Bullying”.

In response to a record number of complaints about bullying, U.S. Department of Education officials sent out a detailed letter to the nation’s schools outlining their legal responsibilities to students with disabilities.
The U.S. Department of Education said in a letter to school officials this week that they are obligated under federal law to respond immediately when bullying of students with disabilities is suspected and act to halt attacks and prevent any recurrence.
The letter comes after an ever-increasing number of complaints and law suits related to bullying of special needs students have occurred in recent years.
New research suggests that as students become more popular and climb the social hierarchy of middle and high school, they are at increased risk for gossip, harassment and even physical attacks from rivals competing for status.
And the adverse consequences of that bullying — including increased depression, anxiety and anger, and decreased school attachment — are magnified the more popular the victim, according to the paper published in April’s American Sociological Review.
“No child falls through the cracks. They are dropped through or shoved through by lazy, emotionally immature adults and unethical professionals”
After the Columbine shootings I made this statement during an interview on national television. The reporter asked if I really believed that statement and I replied, “absolutely!”
But you may ask what this statement has to do with the issue of truancy? Simple, truant children – who are routinely late or absent – come from dysfunctional homes. Those homes in my experience are led by caregivers who are more concerned about their own pleasures and convenience than the welfare of their children. Some may say that this is an unkind assessment. My response to them is simple, visit these homes and you will see that this is not an aberration.
