A comprehensive, effective educational system helps all generations, those living and those to come. Part of this framework includes dedicated and enthusiastic teachers who feel empowered to give their best to the children in their classrooms. To ensure the freest environment for success, educational entities must guarantee teacher legal rights.
Civil Rights for Teachers
The legal dues teachers receive are designed to enable them to work safely and freely.
- Freedom of speech and expression
- Freedom from discrimination
- Freedom to testify against the Board of Education
- Protection from frivolous dismissal
Educators at all grade levels are expected to be responsible and adhere to basic standards set by the entities for which they work. They are, after all, setting an example to the next generation. However, laws clearly state teachers must be given freedoms when at work to use their own personalities and creative abilities to bring out the best in each student.
Insurance for Education
Educational institutions are in a unique position in the legal world, and they and the educators they employ may find themselves facing legal challenges. Specific insurance coverage protects entities devoted to learning and those they hire, freeing them up to deliver quality education.
The right protection, both legal and through proper insurance coverage, helps teachers lead and inspire students to be and do their best.
