Secondary Physical Education, Tort Law and Risk Avoidance: An Interpretive Analysis
David Young is currently a doctoral candidate in education at the University of Western Ontario, where he also teaches courses in both educational psychology and special education. A former teacher and special education coordinator, he received his Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education and Master of Education degrees from the University of New Brunswick, as well as a Master of Arts degree from Acadia University. His paper, which is an extension of his doctoral research, addresses the macro question of whether compensation for personal injuries to students involved in secondary physical education in Ontario should be governed by a pure tort, no-fault, or mixed system.
