Even After Concrete Slab Collapses, Killing Student, School Stays Open

Although our school system leaves a lot to be desired, there is no question that it is vastly better than those in other parts of the world. I'm not talking about from an education standpoint; I'm talking from a student safety standpoint.

Earlier today, it was reported that a slab collapsed beneath two 5 year-old students at a school in India, leaving one of the girls seriously injured, and the second dead. Apparently, numerous complaints had been lodged with the school about its deplorable state of disrepair, and the manifest danger that it posed to the students. In other words, the school and/or the school district was negligent. (For more on this topic, please see "How to Prove Your School Negligence Case Under New York Law").

But that's not even the worst part of this story.

No one has closed the school down to make sure it's safe for students to return.

And that would never happen here.
