Abstract

It is commonly understood that education is a state function. This means that the state constitution and the laws made by the legislature are supreme in matters relating to public education. Reference and practice of long standing adhere to the principle that it is wise to delegate primary responsibility and control of schools to local school districts and their elected boards of education. However, every stat has retained certain powers its schools. Among these powers is that mandating the minimum curriculum to be offered, and specifying those parts of it which pupils are required to follow.
