This publication examines and documents statutes, court cases, attorney generals' opinions, and selected administrative rules governing student teaching and student teachers, as well as the legal relationship between teacher-education institutions and cooperating school systems involved with student teaching. In particular, the author focuses on the legal authority to conduct student teaching in public schools, the student teacher's authority to regulate student conduct, the liability of student teachers for pupil injury, the rights and responsibilities of student teachers compared to regular teachers, the certification of student teachers, and the law on dismissing student teachers and denying a student the right to student teach. Chapter 1 briefly discusses the purpose and methodology of the study; chapter 2 reviews selected literature in the field; chapter 3 briefly examines significant case law related to student teaching; chapter 4 presents a state-by-state review of current legal provisions governing student teaching; and chapter 5 presents the author's conclusions and recommendations. Also included is a bibliography of relevant publications and court cases. (JG)
