The authority relationship between the teacher and his employer namely, the Department of Education as well as the governing body of state-aided schools, has been studied. The authority relationship was studied from the viewpoint of educational law as well as administrative law. This enable the teacher to have secured rights, obligations, privileges and liberties. An empirical study has been done to determine the knowledge of the teacher regarding his relationship with his employer. Opinion survey has been conducted with regard to the contract of service as well as the employment-interview by means of a questionnaire. There seems to he a lack of knowledge regarding the authority relationship between the teacher and his employer. The questionnaire identified that more emphasis must be put to educational law principles with regard to the authority relationship. A written contract of service which is signed both by the teacher and his employer is also a favourable consideration. There are certain aspects of the employment interview which were identified to improve the quality of decision-making by the governing body of state-aided schools. Finally, a summary was made from the literature study and the empirical study. Certain conclusions and recommendations were then made concerning this study as well as any future research.
