Delaware Education Laws
Welcome to FindLaw's coverage of Delaware's laws on public education. While the federal government has a role to play in establishing certain parameters for public education, such as the strict enforcement of the Establishment Clause, but state laws have more influence on how schools operate. In this section, you will learn about laws regulating school prayer, which is limited in some key ways by the U.S. Constitution, as well as the use of corporal punishment in public schools (which is banned in Delaware). In addition, this section includes articles on the privacy of school records and state laws requiring children within a certain age range to attend school.
