Education Discrimination

Massachusetts law makes it illegal for schools, universities, and other educational institutions to discriminate against students based on their race, color, religious creed, national origin, sex, criminal record, blindness, or deafness.

Massachusetts educational institutions must also provide students with an environment free from sexual harassment and are liable for subjecting students to a sexually hostile environment and for sexual harassment of students.

Like many of the clients that we have successfully helped to secure relief and financial compensation, you or your child may be a victim of unlawful discrimination in education, if a school, university, or other educational institution has:

  • denied you or your child admission to school based on such discrimination
  • sexually harassed you or your child in school
  • retaliated against you or your child, as a school employee, student or applicant, by penalizing you because you have testified, participated or assisted in any discrimination complaint proceeding

As a victim of unlawful education discrimination and school discrimination, you or your child may be entitled to various relief, including gaining unrestricted admission to the school; putting a stop to the sexual harassment in school; putting a stop to the retaliation in school; plus payment for emotional distress damages, medical expenses, attorney's fees/costs and punitive damages.

If you are a victim of discrimination in education or sexual harassment in school, we, as experienced Massachusetts discrimination lawyers, can help you get the full relief and compensation that you are entitled to under the law.
