Q. Where can I find good information on American educational policies?
An excellent source on the Alabama Virtual Library (AVL) is "Education: Meeting America's Needs?" part of the Gale Virtual Reference Library. This is a volume of the Information Plus Reference Series that explores contemporary issues in the U.S. on a level useful for high school and junior college students writing research papers. This source includes an overview of contemporary American education and explores issues such as public vs. private education, special eduation, testing of students, training and standards for teachers and setting national education goals.
