This chapter summarices and analyzes all state supreme court and federal court decisions as well as other significant court decisions involving the tort liability of school districts and school personnel. The cases discussed are generally limited to those decided during 1974 and reported in the General Digest on or before March 1, 1975. In his discussion, the author attempts to integrate related cases and to illuminate any unifying legal principles that underlie the decisions relevant to each specific subtopic of school liability. Separate sections of the articles focus in turn on cases involving negligence, assault and battery, governmental immunity, contributory negligence, insurance, transportation, individual liability of school personnel, and miscellaneous procedural requirements.
