School Liability for Negligence/Bullying


School negligence can harm students physically, emotionally and psychologically. It can take the form of bullying, unfair discipline on the lack of suspension by teachers or administrators.

New York has passed an anti-bullying statute in which public schools are required to ensure students are not subject to harassment, bullying or cyber-bullying. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a public school can be held liable under federal harassment laws if it does not adequately deal with severe and persistent bullying based on race, gender or disability. Private schools, like public schools, are subject to common law duties of care towards students, and could be held responsible for bullying under theories of negligence and premises liability.
