The major purpose of this study is to determine the nature and characteristics of the contractual relationships between school boards of education and public school teachers. Controversies between the board and the teacher have frequently arisen and have often been carried to the courts. Courts have been called upon to settle issues which deal with the status of existing between the board and the teacher, and thereby do exert an influence upon the priviledges or denials, allowed or disallowed when contracting parties make such agreements. This study deals with the action of the courts, and the decisions of the judges as based upon and governed by the facts of the case.
