  • At school, teachers serve students in loco parentis—“in place of parents.” In the public sector, they act as agents of the state and are responsible for educating students and for keeping them safe in an orderly, well-maintained, and efficiently managed learning environment. Teachers may use reasonable force to safeguard both themselves and the student population. They have the right to due process under the law. Teachers have the right to academic freedom, allowing them to present educational material in a way that is uniquely their own as long as it fits within the parameters allowed by the school board. Freedom of speech for teachers can be censored by the school board if it is determined to be objectionable by their standards.
