Title IX and Title VII coverage of teachers

But of course teachers are covered to the same extent that students are
under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, that is to say, less
covered after Gebser v. Lago Vista. Teachers and students/parents can
therefore make common cause on correcting the hostile environment
encouraged by that decision. In addition, of course, teachers are
covered by the far more elaborated and powerful Title VII of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964.

By the way, we would like to hear stories of educators who have been
sexually harassed by students, as well as stat breakdowns by gender on
both sides in OCR reports, etc.
