Faculty and Staff Notes

Ovid Wong (Education) published a newspaper article titled "Rights and Responsibilities" in the Monthly Herald, Vol.28, No.11, November 2015.  The article discusses a case study of a teacher assigned to cafeteria duty and a student slipped on some spilled milk and broke her arm. The parents sued the teacher for negligence and damage.  The concept of misfeasance and nonfeasance was compared and discussed.
