Donlevy, James Kent; Gereluk, Dianne; Brandon, Jim; Patterson, Peggy – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2017
Following "E.D.G. v. Hammer", Canadian law has held that school boards, although they have a fiduciary duty to their students, do not guarantee the safety of their students from the acts of their employees.

These arrangements only reluctantly accommodate the religious diversity within society. Although scholars…
