I created this web page to help folks learn more about the history of federal government’s role in elementary and secondary education. Here you will find copies of the major federal laws, landmark court cases, and helpful research materials on the federal role in education. You also will find the best books on the federal role in schooling. This website is a nonpartisan educational resource.
If you would like to suggest or contribute materials, please contact me at kevinrkosar [at] gmail [dot] com.
