Teachers' Rights

Welcome to FindLaw’s Teacher's Rights section, where you can find information and resources on the rights of teachers in public schools. Teachers have the same basic rights as others -- such as the right to be free from discrimination based on race, sex, and national origin -- as well as the right to academic freedom to teach without undue restrictions on content or subject matter. Educators, like other employees, also have the right to collectively bargain through teachers’ unions. This section includes articles on the process of joining a teacher's union and resolving union conflicts. Also included are articles on contracts, tenure, dismissal, and much more.
