Tort Liability in the Classroom, the Science Lab, and on the Playground.
DeMitchell, Todd A.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v7 n3 p281-88 Jul 1998

Educators' best defense is consistently discharging their duties to students in a reasonable, prudent manner. Science teachers should secure all dangerous chemicals, provide adequate supervision, develop proper safety guidelines, and check all safety equipment. (38 references) (MLH)
