Rationale of Justification It was also concluded that student supervision is not unwaveringly discretionary in all respects, but here, because the school's policy was not so clear as to render Caldwell's actions ministerial, she was given official immunityPersonal Reaction to DecisionIn my opinion, there is more to consider besides just the teacher’s lack of supervision. Should she be held accountable for what occurred? Partially. She walked by a hall monitor that she chose not to ask to watch her class. She also lied to her administrator about where she was when the accident occurred, which leads me to have suspicions.
Legal Brief 3ImplicationsThis case affects administrators in today’s school settings because the issue of teachers leaving classrooms unattended is a constant battle in today’s classrooms. However, what is the solution? Teachers must go to the restroom at times, or run an extra copy or two. But if there is no one to watch the classroom when an emergency arises, what should the teacher do? I think that it then becomes an issue of finding a way for teachers to have an assistant or office personnel assigned to them to assist them in watching their class when an emergency arises.
