AGO 1952 NO. 389 > Aug 27 1952

There is no statutory or general provision of law under which court action may be taken to restrain the superintendents, principals and teachers of the public schools from engaging in political activities.  However, if such activities are engaged in by a teacher in the school before the students, it might be the basis for a dismissal by the school board.
