According to a recent American Tort Reform Association survey, almost one-third of all high school principals have been named in a lawsuit, compared to only nine percent just 10 years ago. Typical allegations that educators must defend themselves against include:
- Failure to supervise a classroom
- Sexual harassment
- Wrongful termination
- Breaches of duty, neglect, errors or omissions
- Failure to respond to or prevent bullying activities
We know that most schools operate day-to-day without a hitch and that most employees who work in education want to make a difference and show up on the job intending to do their jobs as well as possible. But, because of challenges educators face daily – such as the increasing lack of respect for authority in our society, students and parents who are trauma survivors, cyber and physical bullying, and the pervasive use of social media – school culture has become more volatile than ever. Unfortunately, it is simply naive to think that just because an educator is trying to do a good job, that he or she is immune from being sued.
