Laws & Guidance

Overview

Legislation, regulations, guidance, and other policy documents can be found here for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, No Child Left Behind, and other topics.

Please note that in the U.S., the federal role in education is limited. Because of the Tenth Amendment, most education policy is decided at the state and local levels. So, if you have a question about a policy or issue, you may want to check with the relevant organization in your state or school district.
