This guide includes resources on education law, including charter schools and voucher systems, higher education, special education, accountability, and discrimination.

Secondary Sources

When you begin a research project, it is often helpful to refer to a number of key resources that provide an overview of the topic. These scholarly and journalistic materials, broadly called "secondary sources" in the legal field, will help you to familiarize yourself with issues and to learn what words are commonly used to describe concepts within the area you are studying. This background research will aid greatly when searching for more specific information later. The subpages list treatises, news sources, journals, databases, and other resources that provide background and overview in education-related topics.
