Every state in the U.S. has established its own education system with its own laws on how schools, teachers, and all educational issues are managed. These take primary importance over federal law. However, under the U.S. Department of Education, legislation, guidance, and policies have been passed and issued. These laws and policies address such issues as civil rights, students with disabilities, family educational rights and privacy, and more. Attorneys who work in education law represent students and families at the local level as well as the school boards and educational institutions they attend to resolve issues and disputes over any aspect of the system.
