Educational Malpractice and the Reading Practitioner.
Reilly, James B.
Prompted by the increased possibility of teachers facing educational malpractice charges, this paper outlines the historical legal precedents through which plaintiffs have sought recognition for this new cause of action, the defenses established against it, and the rationale on which various courts have balanced their decisions. The paper also discusses predictions on the probable behavior of the judiciary in such actions and the reasoning behind those predictions. Finally, it offers suggestions and comments on the important role of educators in preventing or winning malpractice suits. (HOD)
