6 Year-Old Found Wandering Outside School Building Unsupervised

Earlier today, I came across a question posed by a parent as to whether they had a valid negligence claim against their child's school, who was (quite understandably) disturbed to learn that her 6 year-old child had been found wandering around outside of the school unsupervised - during school hours. Apparently, despite having 14 doors leading to the outside of the school building, none of the doors are alarmed - even though the school has children as young as 2-1/2 years old.

Unfortunately, as noted in a blog post written nearly one year ago entitled "Why Some NY Schools Can Get Away With Negligent Supervision," sometimes no positive change will come from a school's end of things following a near-tragedy.
