Jennifer Frankola Presents CLE on Bullying at New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA)

On September 17, 2015, as part of the “CLE for Lunch” Education Law Series, Jennifer Frankola presented on the topic of bullying students with disabilities titled “The IDEA’s Shadow on Bullying.” During her CLE, Jennifer discussed that while being bullied is a horrible experience for any child, it can be extremely traumatizing for special needs children. She discussed and taught about the protections provided by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and focused on the ever evolving case law in the Second Circuit, as well as the actions parents can take and the responsibilities of the schools to ensure that special needs children receive meaningful benefits from their educational programs.

The program was co-sponsored by NYCLA’s Education Law Committee led by program chairs Nelson Mar, Esq. of Bronx Legal Services and Jessica Limbacher, Esq. of Volunteer Lawyers for Justice.
