special relationship theory

With all this talk about reopening schools, you should know who is responsible if anything happens to your child while (s)he is in your school.

Special relationship doctrine is a legal principle that makes the state liable for the harm inflicted on the individual by a third party provided that the state has assumed control over the individual which is sufficient to trigger an affirmative duty to provide protection to that individual.

This law/ruling provides determination who is responsible for your child when you drop him off at school. This law was actually handed down by the Federal Courts when a child was abused at a school and the State was held responsible for allowing just anyone in but it also applies to the pandemic.
