Q. How does a state of emergency affect schools in the state of Pennsylvania? Are schools deciding to go cyber legal?
A: Yes, the school is within its legal rights to disseminate education to its students through online learning. Requiring students to attend school, in person, could put more students at risk than necessary, so providing online education would not violate any laws.
Q. Can you tell a true story on a podcast, change names and locations and it be legal? Can a teacher do this?
A: As an initial matter, libel consists of the written word, whereas slander is the spoken word. Whether its' libel or slander, they require the information to be false. The defense to a libel or slander lawsuit is the truth. To answer your other question, yes, you can tell stories of people by changing their names and locations without running the risk of legal issues, AS LONG AS the listeners would not be able to tell who you're talking about. Sometimes, other details in the story can still give away the person about whom you're speaking. Also, you can still tell the stories and not run a risk of a lawsuit if the person about whom you're talking has no damage to their reputation within the community.
Q. What are the consequences for a school that begins to promote a specific religion?
