  • U.S. Department of Education Releases Human Trafficking in America's Schools Guide

    Posted January 27, 2015

    Trafficking of children or the sale of children is modern slavery. It involves exploiting a child for the purpose of forced labor, commercial sex, or both. An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked each year worldwide, and the problem is dire right here in America.

    Everyone who is part of the school community- administrators, teachers, bus drivers, maintenance personnel, food service staff, resource officers, and other school community members-has the potential to be an advocate for child victims of human trafficking, but we must learn the indicators of the crime, its warning signs, and how to respond when a student is an apparent victim.

    Human Trafficking in America's Schools is a guide for school staff that includes information about risk factors, recruitment, and how to identify trafficking; what to do if you suspect trafficking, including sample school protocols and policies; and other resources and potential partnership opportunities.
