Discrimination in Education

Learn about what conduct is considered discrimination involving educational institutions and how we are protecting your rights.

It is illegal discrimination if you were denied admission to a school, university, or other educational institution in Massachusetts based on your race, color, religious creed, national origin, sex, age, criminal record, blindness or deafness, or retaliation.

In addition, educational institutions are responsible for providing an environment free from sexual harassment.
