For years a young special needs student endured vicious verbal, emotional and at times, even physical abuse at the hands of a school bully, all while administrators turned a blind eye. After two years of torment, the young girl transferred to a private institution and her parents sued her previous school on the Upper East Side. Now, after an eight-year legal battle, the courts have ruled in the family’s favor. In our ongoing American Graduate series, we get the details from the girl’s father and learn about a student’s rights and a school’s responsibilities from their family lawyer.
