Education law in the United States is both state and federal constitutional provisions; local, state, and federal statutes; court opinions; and government regulations that provide the framework of educational institutions. Much of the litigation, legislation, and debate in education law has been concentrated in nine main issues: student speech and expression; searches of students; separation of church and state; racial segregation; the education of disabled children; employment law; employee sexual harassment and abuse of students; instructional programming; and the financing of public education.
