The Department of Education – Investigations

 

The education of students and opportunities for teachers is regulated by both state and federal offices, ensuring a safe, secure and educational learning environment for all students, staff and parents. In New York, the Office of General Counsel leads investigations for allegations of abuse within the educational system. Two units investigate – first, the Office of Special Investigations. This office inquires into allegations of illegal behavior, such as corporal punishment or verbal abuse against students.
