Fossey, W. Richard
West's Education Law Reporter, v63 n1 p1-10 Dec 6 1990
Open records statutes, child abuse reporting laws, and public policy are impediments to confidential settlement agreements with school districts and teachers accused of child abuse. In addition, a school administrator should ask whether the settlement agreement could assist an unsuitable teacher to obtain employment in another school district. (MLF)
