This program, taught by the head of the Education Department at Mattleman, Weinroth & Miller, Jerry L. Tannenbaum, will help the viewer understand the complexities of the school bullying problem, the legal history, and the avenues of exposure for educational institutions.
The course will cover the differences in the law when the targeted child is a child with special needs, and/or when the bullying occurs because the targeted child belongs to an otherwise recognized protected class, such as race, ethnicity, disability or gender.
