LEGAL ASPECTS OF STUDENT TEACHING.
SWALLS, FRED
THE LEGAL POSITION OF STUDENT TEACHERS WAS STUDIED. A SURVEY OF STATUTES, ATTORNEY GENERALS' OPINIONS, AND CASE LAWS IN 10 STATES WAS CONDUCTED. THE LEGAL ASPECTS OF STUDENT TEACHING SURVEYED WERE (1) THE LIABILITY FOR PUPIL INJURY, (2) THE AUTHORITY TO REGULATE PUPIL CONDUCT, AND (3) THE LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CORPORATIONS AND OF SPONSORING INSTITUTIONS. SOURCE MATERIAL WAS OBTAINED FROM CALIFORNIA, CONNECTICUT, INDIANA, KENTUCKY, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, OREGON, PENNSYLVANIA, WASHINGTON, AND WEST VIRGINIA. AN ANALYSIS OF PREVIOUS STUDIES RELATED TO THE STUDY WAS MADE AND DOCUMENTED. CONCLUSIONS WERE PRESENTED FOR EACH OF THE ASPECTS STUDIED. GENERALLY, THE RECOMMENDATIONS MADE WERE (1) EACH STATE SHOULD ENACT LEGISLATION TO AUTHORIZE STUDENT TEACHING IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND DEFINE THE AUTHORITY DELEGATED TO THE STUDENT TEACHER, (2) SAVE-HARMLESS STATUTES SHOULD BE PROVIDED OR REVISED TO COVER STUDENT TEACHERS, (3) STATES OPERATING UNDER THE RULE OF GOVERNMENTAL IMMUNITY SHOULD PROVIDE INSURANCE PROTECTION TO STUDENT TEACHERS AND SUPERVISING TEACHERS, (4) STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION SHOULD ESTABLISH RULES TO GUIDE CONDUCT OF STUDENT-TEACHING PROGRAMS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
