Defining Adequate Supervision
Teachers, day care administrators, nannies, and others involved in childcare are required to maintain adequate supervision of their pupils and charges. The term “adequate supervision” does not have a one size fits all definition. It varies depending on the situation and the student.
Factors that influence the standard of adequate supervision may include:
- The child’s age
- The type of activity
- The setting of the activity
- The child’s experience level
If your child was hurt on a field trip or suffered psychological or physical harm caused by school bullying, you should talk to a lawyer. Standing up for your child’s rights is important. Not only are you protecting your child and asserting that your child deserves justice, you’re also setting an important precedent and potentially protecting other children in your local community who may have faced the same issues.
