Abstract: There have been many studies in recent years dealing with the legal status of schools, boards of education, teachers, students, finance and the many other aspects of the educational system at large. These studies have been thorough and of great value to school people but they have dealt with the subjects on a national scale. Since public schools are a State function and laws governing them are enacted by the legislatures of the various states, it is to be expected that they would vary throughout the nation. However, in many instances they would be quite similar. Since hundreds of teachers and principals are engaged in the instruction of thousands of children in the public schools of North Caroline, it seems quite fitting, if not necessary, that a study be made whereby the legal relationship existing between the principal, the teacher and the public school student may be set forth in a convenient, usable form. Many difficulties arise throughout the State each year which could be avoided if such source of legal information were available.
