Applying Negligence Doctrine to the Teaching Profession.
Collingsworth, Terrence P.
Journal of Law and Education, v11 n4 p479-505 Oct 1982
The author first reviews the current cases on teacher negligence and attempts to isolate the reasoning behind the courts' refusal to recognize a cause of action for educational malpractice, then develops a hypothetical case to illustrate that ordinary principles of negligence can be applied to an educational malpractice case.
