> I also feel like this CYA policy may backfire. Before they could rightfully say they weren't the responsible party. Now that they are using tax payer funds to "prevent" these things I feel like they put themselves in a position to be responsible if it fails. I am sure there is some legal doctrine term for what I am trying to say.
This is a really interesting perspective and I'm curious if someone knowledgeable on the subject would comment. If public education is a right, can my child be denied that right if I refuse to consent to a license? If the child consents, is that not an invalid contract?
