There's been a fair amt of concern abt lawyers and liability. I practice law - part time now, formerly full time in Va Atty Gen'ls Office. In Virginia, as I suspect in most states, sovereign immunity shields public school teachers from common law tort liability. In the 30 years I've had a license to practice law, I've never heard of a successful suit against a public school teacher for a purely teaching related activity. Racial or other discrimination, sexual misconduct, etc., claims yes - tort liability - no. But the law varies some from state to state. This would be a good issue for the CHAL [law] section to give a symposium on at an ACS national mtg. R.
