Topical Guides

Within the broad scope of education policy, SIFEPP advisors have identified thirteen key topics in which federal policy has played an important role. This project has focused on five of those topics that have been central to the state-federal dynamic in education policy. For each of the five topics below, you will find a brief historical note and a selected bibliography of published materials:

State advocacy on federal education policy
