Flashcard Content Overview

Public schools in America are controlled by three different levels of government. These flashcards will help you review the relationship between education and the government at the local, state, and federal levels. For example, where does the funding for public schools come from? What level is responsible for ensuring educators are properly certified? Who is responsible for determining whether students are being properly educated, and how is this accomplished? All of these questions and more will be answered by this flashcard set.
