dc.description.abstract This paper will use Blackstone's doctrine of in loco parentis as a lens for viewing the sexual abuse of a student by an educator. It will attempt to show that the current theories of responsibility-respondent superior, special relationship, and Title IX-regarding the sexual abuse of students are inadequate. Blackstone's in loco parentis theory of responsibility may provide a more appropriate vehicle for the protection of children in school. If educators act in the place of parents, should they be held to a similar duty to protect the children entrusted to their care? en_US
