Abstract: The advent of constitutionally protected rights for students brought about a new role for elementary and secondary public school administrators. Representing the parent, the state and the Constitution of the United States requires that administrators have an understanding of the bases of authority and the limitations of authority for these sometimes conflicting roles. The three bases of authority for public school administration are: the parents, the state, and the Constitution of the United States.
