While U.S. education policy is widely discussed and often well documented, the impact of states on that policy receives much less attention. In response, SIFEPP is creating a continually growing public resource on the role of states in shaping pre-K–12 federal education policy since the mid-twentieth century.

This project is a national initiative led by the New York State Archives and funded by

The New York Community Trust -
Wallace Foundation Special Projects Fund.

Funding for this project was also provided by the generosity of former New York State Education Comissioner Gordon M. Ambach.
