MetadataShow full item record
This study was undertaken, making use of literature studies, to determine what it involves for the teacher acting as a "in loco parentis"-person within the pedagogical education. What is of particular importance and receives much attention is the concept explication of "in loco parentis". Further attention is given to the origin of the concept "in loco parentis" as well as the application thereof in different countries like England, the United States of America and South Africa. An important aspect, as seen from the view-point of the teacher, is the pedagogic tuition which results from the definition of a "in loco parentis"-person. Much attention is paid to this, especially the matter concerning the triangular relationship between the parent, the child and the teacher and the duty that the teacher has to keep these relationships intact and functioning. Important concepts that come to the fore and to which attention must be paid are authority, discipline and punishment and how the "in loco parentis"-teacher must handle this. Attention is also paid to the legal side of the "in loco parentis"-teacher regarding his duty and rights. Concepts explication is done regarding legal terminology. At the same time attention is paid as to how this affects the teacher in his "in loco parentis" position.
