The teacher's liability for student safety and for implementing the curriculum as prescribed by state and local regulation is defined, and suggestions are made for ensuring student safety. Guidelines are given for working with the community and for accounting for funds and equipment. Help available to the teacher who finds himself in trouble is described, and suggestions are made for positive action that may be taken to modify laws and regulations. The appendix includes bibliographies on teacher liability, narcotics and alcohol education, care of living animals, radiation safety, eye protection, sex education, model rocketry, and general health and safety.
