LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Professor Terry Richard from UALR says he's tried to address this problem with three separate Little Rock School administrations.
Superintendent Dr. Morris Holmes says he would like more information as to how Dr. Richard conducted the study, but either way he's willing to take necessary action to protect all students of the district.
"Particularly among Latinas, young females, we're talking fourth and fifth graders, there was a consistent response from the schools that they were being sexually harassed and there were also issues with bullying, being picked upon," says Richard.
Richard found another pattern from the study, which dates back from 2006 to 2008 and another set from 2010.
"Cases of predation or exposure or groping tended to be from African Americans at a very early age," says Richard.
