Educator Liability Insurance

Educator Liability Insurance

House Bill (HB) 506 authorizes a pay increase and liability insurance for all State education employees.

Prior to HB 506’s passage, Alabama provided liability insurance to all “State employees or agents of the State,” but specifically excluded “any educational institution or board.”

Providing liability insurance increases teacher’s disposable income, equalizes them with other state employees, and ensures membership to groups like the AEA for utilitarian and ideological purposes.
