AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to establishing liability
  protection for public school educators

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "education
quality and teacher and principal protection act".
  S 2. The education law is amended by adding a new article 62  to  read
as follows:
                                ARTICLE 62
               EDUCATION QUALITY AND TEACHER AND PRINCIPAL
                             PROTECTION ACT
SECTION 3070. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS.
        3071. DEFINITIONS.
        3072. LIABILITY.
        3073. PUNITIVE AND EXEMPLARY DAMAGES.
        3074. FALSE REPORTS.
        3075. FRIVOLOUS ACTIONS; ATTORNEY'S FEES; COST.
        3076. CONTINGENCY FEES; PENALTY.
        3077. INSURANCE.
  S  3070. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT ENSURING THE
QUALITY OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY PUBLIC EDUCATION IS A COMPELLING  STATE
INTEREST. THE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT OF STUDENTS IS OFTEN NOT CONDUCIVE
TO LEARNING. VIOLENCE IS SOMETIMES A THREAT, WHILE OTHER TIMES EDUCATORS
MAY  LACK  THE AUTHORITY TO MAINTAIN SAFETY AND DISCIPLINE IN THE PUBLIC
SCHOOLS. THE FILING OF  MERITLESS  LAWSUITS  AGAINST  SCHOOL  DISTRICTS,
TEACHERS,  ADMINISTRATORS,  AND  OTHER  SCHOOL EMPLOYEES INTERFERES WITH
ATTEMPTS TO ENSURE THE QUALITY OF PUBLIC EDUCATION,  PARTICULARLY  WHERE
SUCH  LAWSUITS ARISE OUT OF THE GOOD FAITH EFFORTS OF EDUCATORS TO MAIN-

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
