The schoolmaster is abroad; and I trust to him, armed with his primer, against the soldier in full military array. --Brougham. [1913 Webster] 2. One who, or that which, disciplines and directs.

Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary:

Schoolmaster the law so designated by Paul (Gal. 3:24, 25). As so used, the word does not mean teacher, but pedagogue (shortened into the modern page), i.e., one who was intrusted with the supervision of a family, taking them to and from the school, being responsible for their safety and manners. Hence the pedagogue was stern and severe in his discipline. Thus the law was a pedagogue to the Jews, with a view to Christ, i.e., to prepare for faith in Christ by producing convictions of guilt and helplessness. The office of the pedagogue ceased when "faith came", i.e., the object of that faith, the seed, which is Christ.
Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856):

SCHOOLMASTER. One employed in teaching a school. 2. A schoolmaster stands in loco parentis in relation to the pupils committed to his charge, while they are under his care, so far as to enforce obedience to his, commands, lawfully given in his capacity of school-master, and he may therefore enforce them by moderate correction. Com. Dig. Pleader, 3 M 19; Hawk. c. 60, sect. 23. Vide Correction. 3. The schoolmaster is justly entitled to be paid for his important and arduous services by those who employ him. See 1 Bing.
