Report Finds Brunswick Schools Should Have Done More to Protect Middle School Student

| July 15, 2014


BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) – The Brunswick schools should have done more to protect a middle school student who said he was bullied, stabbed and sexually assaulted at school, according to the Maine Human Rights Commission. ¬†An investigator’s report issued Monday said there are reasonable grounds to believe that the Brunswick School Department discriminated against the student based on his gender and perceived sexual orientation. The tormenting allegedly started when the student was a sixth-grader at Brunswick Junior High and continued for two years. The boy’s lawyer tells WMTW-TV the boy’s attendance, grades and health began to fail. Brunswick’s superintendent said in a statement he disagreed with the commission’s finding and the school “moved quickly and decisively” in response to all complaints. The boy, now 15, has moved out of the district.
