The Wallingford-Swarthmore School District has begun discussing a policy to officially prohibit sexual harassment of students. The policy is needed because of a recent court decision that students could sue a school district over sexual harassment, Superintendent George H. Slick explained after the school board's regular meeting on Monday. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously in February that students can recover damages from schools and school officials for sexual harassment under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination in schools receiving federal money.

Two weeks ago, 6-year-old Jonathan Prevette responded to a classmate's request for a kiss by pecking her cheek - a gesture that made him an instant celebrity. Fame came knocking, thanks to the unfathomable thickheadedness of adults who run public schools in Lexington, N.C. They deemed the first-grader's kiss to be "unwelcome touching" in violation of the district's sexual harassment policy. Jonathan was suspended for a day and missed an ice cream party with his class. Then the fun began: TV interviews.

Johnna Crawford came to Voorhees Township recently to warn South Jersey businesses about sexual harassment. "Businesses can stop many sexual-harassment lawsuits before they become a problem," Crawford said. She should know. In April 1990, Crawford filed a civil lawsuit against Stockton State College, charging that a fellow athletics department employee sexually harassed her at meetings in Hammonton and Boston. In October, Crawford received $501,000 to settle her lawsuit against the school, although school and state officials denied her allegations of harassment.

By Carrie Lukas Hillary Clinton wants to have it both ways. She wants voters to support her because they'd like a rerun of her husband's presidency (remembered as an era of relative peace and prosperity), but she doesn't want to have to answer for her husband's personal conduct and character. Yet Bill Clinton's treatment of women - and the many other scandals and ethical lapses that plagued his presidency - are a legitimate and important issue for voters to consider. Hillary Clinton wants to dismiss all such questions as dirty, tabloid politics meant to distract voters from real issues.
