College Teaching Assistant Physically Caressing My Daughter

Dear College Teaching Assistant Physically Caressing My Daughter,

What to do if a college teaching assistant physically caressed my daughter during tutoring?


Dear College Teaching Assistant Physically Caressing My Daughter,

You should report the incidence to the chair of the department that the teaching assistant is working in. This behavior not only violates the criminal code but the ethical conduct guidelines of the institution. The incident takes on greater significance because the teaching assistant is in what is called “a position of power.” Since the person has the potential to have influence over your daughter’s grade, she may be reluctant to speak out because she feels her grade could be affected. The assistant is using his/her position to sexually exploit your daughter and most likely other students.

It is important that your daughter notify the administration right away. There is no doubt that the situation has made your daughter feel uncomfortable at school and there is absolutely she should have to feel this way
