Domestic Violence and Schools

Produced by Massachusetts legal services' Domestic Violence and School Safety Workgroup
Reviewed October 2019

Children who have been exposed to domestic violence sometimes experience serious problems at school as a result. Abusive parents sometimes try to interfere with:

  • their children's safety at school
  • their children's education, and
  • with the ability of custodial parents to support their children's education.
