Recent Changes in the Legal Aspects of Physical Education and Athletics.
Grieve, Andrew
This paper discusses the implications for schools, physical education, teachers, and coaches in the increasing tendency of students and/or their parents to resort to legal action in the case of school-related injury. The number of cases involving litigation against these institutions and their personnel has multiplied rapidly. The amount of damages sought in these cases is currently spiraling upward toward sums in the millions. Typical cases are cited, and some possible defensive policies are considered. (JD)
