From the Paper:"As the country has grown and developed, fair employment practices for all levels of employees have been developed, and this holds true for the teaching profession, as well. As two education legal experts note, "The law concerning the school's treatment of its employees emanates from many sources--state and federal constitutional provisions, state and federal statutes, and the common law" (Imber & Geel, 2004, p. 169). However, even though many different areas of law apply to education, that does not mean that teachers enjoy all the same employment safeguards that many other professions enjoy."
