Recognizing Negligent Behavior
Teachers are required to adhere to certain professional standards. Recognizing the following negligent actions will help prevent harm not only to your child, but also prevent a negligent teacher from allowing others to engage in disruptive behavior:
- Poor monitoring of children
- Lack of emergency training or lack of action in the event of an emergency
- Failure to intervene in fights or other dangerous and disruptive behavior
- Allowing children to participate in dangerous activities
- Lack of certification or falsification of certification
Although teachers’ unions can be aggressive in defending one of their own, you can fight back by having an experienced teacher negligence attorney on your side.
