Abstract

Determines if high school educators were aware of selected legal decisions rendered by the Supreme Court that affect the daily operations of the public schools. Forty‐three principals, 63 assistant principals and 184 teachers were administered an instrument to assess their knowledge of public school law. Educators lacked knowledge in areas of school finance, corporal punishment, and teacher rights. Demonstrates the need to require courses in school law as a prerequisite for teacher certification and to fund heavily staff development training in law.
