In order to fit multilevel model (HLM) in 3 level analysis can I select only one unit of analysis at level 2.

I mean to say that can i proceed in this way

(level 1)= students= 20 (From each school) (level 2)= teacher = 01 (from each School) (level 3)= schools= 50

or should it be better to exclude teacher from level 2 and thus

(level 1)= students= 20 (From each school) (level 2)= schools= 50.

If I am understanding your question correctly, you do not have variability at level 2 (with only 1 teacher per school) and therefore cannot estimate a 3 level model in this data.
