National Public Radio reports on students driving new polices as K-12 Sexual Assault Investigations Rise.   The article centers on a female student at a public high school who helped push the school district to put in place policies to protect female students from sexual harassment, as required under Title IX, a federal law.  In some cases, sexual harassment can be open and notorious.  Another student profiled in the story explained:

“My message is simple: It is your job to keep students safe. When a student comes forward and reports an assault, school officials must step up, provide support and take the report seriously.”
