EDU 460 Community and Legal Issues in Education


This course reviews public school structure and organization in terms of the teacher’s numerous roles and relationships. These relationships include parents and community, and various elements in the typical school environment. These include students, peers, support staff, and administration. Students are familiarized with the legal foundations applicable to employment and professional practice within a public-school setting. The three major functions of a teacher—to supervise, to keep safe, and to instruct—are examined with focus on the goal of providing an enhanced awareness of “preventative law.”  Prerequisite: Pre-Professional Educator Status.
