This publication is designed to encourage and assist those who seek to improve school systems through the improvement of school laws. This is a revised edition of "Know Your School Law," Bulletin 1952 No. 1, by Dr. Ward W. Keesecker, and is part of the Office of Education program to develop a clearinghouse of timely and useful information on important phases of school law. The purpose of this publication is to stimulate interest in the further improvement of educational laws, to identify legislative need in the field of education, and to suggest guiding principles, procedures, and source material helpful to this end. This bulletin is organized into two parts.
