Bullying

Children cannot learn if they don't feel safe.  If your child is being bullied at school, you can do something about it.

Federal and New York State law protect children against harassment and discrimination based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color, weight, national origin, ethnicity, religion, or disability.

When notified of bullying, school districts are required to act.  Asher, Gaughran LLP can assist you in getting your child's school to focus on and address bullying and, if necessary, in taking legal action to vindicate your child's right to attend school free of bias, bullying and harassment.
