New Jersey Education Laws

Education is controlled primarily at the state level, although federal initiatives such as the No Child Left Behind Act set nationwide standards. Education laws govern how public schools are funded; how the government interacts with teacher unions; and curriculum requirements. In New Jersey, for example, school participation is required for all children ages 6 to 16 (with some exceptions). Also, New Jersey law provides the right of public school students to pray or meditate silently in school. This section covers New Jersey education laws, which include the manner in which student records are kept private and the legality of corporate punishment. Click on a link to learn more.
