Here’s a cheerful back-to-school stat:

“Sexual harassment affects 89 percent of girls in grades 2 through 12, Michele Paludi writes in the Handbook for Achieving Gender Equity through Education, sponsored by the Feminist Majority Foundation. Thirty-nine percent of girls report experiencing sexual harassment every day at school. Although sexual harassment has consistently been a major problem in the US, many school officials still don’t know how to recognize or deal with sexual harassment issues, according to an American Association of University Women report.”

This is from this article, about two 13 year-old boys in Oregon who are facing trial for sexual harassment.
