dc.description.abstract A vast body of laws exists which affects all teachers in Indiana. Over the years, each legislative session devotes much of its attention to the multitude of problems which have arisen in the controlling and constant upgrading of the statewide educational program. Quite often thepublic spirited citizen is only made aware of the financial plight in the educational picture and fails to become informed of the other areas wherein education is served by legislation. Likewise, many teachers are similarly unaware of the implications of the laws as they apply to them in their respective everyday teaching situations. As a teacher and coach the writer was made aware of many laws which both protect and limit the teacher in the performance of his assigned duty. As a result of conversations with colleagues, many did not have an understanding of school laws and the scope of such but did indicate a definite interest in knowing more about the legal framework within which the educational provisions are structured. It is of paramount significance therefore that the laws which protect teachers in their responsibilities be known and understoodby those for whom the laws were originated.Like the children who form the student bodies in the various schools the world over, adults also like to have a knowledge of the boundaries wherein the maximum teaching effectiveness can be ideally attained. Certain professions have traditional oaths of allegiance which are administered upon admission to their respective fields of endeavor. These oaths serve as a code of ethics and flexible guide to the proper conduct of the goals of the profession. wile the teaching profession possesses no formal oath of entrance, the various states have labored at great lengths to legally protect each teacher so that the basic rights of all individuals concerned can be democratically maintained.The research is concerned with the knowledge teachers have of Indiana School Law. In view of the fact that the total areas covered by such laws were found to be quite numerous, the' writer chose two aspects whose ramifications would continually confront the classroom teacher in his day by day teaching experiences. This study is limited in scope to the aspects of pupil control and teacher liability. en_US
