PALM SPRINGS, CA – WorldFlix, Inc. (OTC PINK: WRFX), an App / Technology company that operates through a variety of niche industries using unique and disruptive technologies, announces it will target insurance companies to assist in offsetting possible liability risk, as schools begin to see an increase of cyberbullying cases.
As a matter of course, parents are generally responsible for the acts of their children until the age of 18. However, during school hours, public schools assume the custodial role over children. The United States Supreme Court has held that teachers and school administrators, it is said, act in loco parentis in their dealings with students; their authority is that of the parent. Under this assumption, parents entrust the safety and wellbeing of their children to teachers and administrators. As we might expect, and as the reports of cyberbullying incidents rise, so has the number of lawsuits against schools, teachers and administrators.
To meet this challenge, 47 states and Washington D.C. have bullying laws that include electronic harassment (Cyberbullying Research Center April 2013 report).
Under these laws, and in some cases under existing federal laws, parents or guardians may sue school staff members – on behalf of their children – for negligence, failing to use reasonable care to protect students from harm caused by cyberbullying.
This has led to more schools looking for tools to not just monitor for potential cases of cyberbullying, but to be proactive in reducing these cases, and thus potentially reducing liability risk to their schools and districts.
Swantry will target insurance companies to help empower school administrators with Swantry monitoring technology to help them stay ahead of risk, and potential lawsuit litigation some of these cases may produce. For the insurance companies a technology such as Swantry could help keep down liability costs for the insurance providers, and potential insurance costs for the schools that implement such monitoring technology.
By targeting insurance providers Swantry may be able to scale up its per student subscriber base more rapidly on a per school, or school district implementation.
