Containing more than 2,000 entries, this three-volume work provides a wealth of information on virtually every aspect of education, from the evolution of school curriculum, education funding, and church-state controversies to the latest debates on multiculturalism, prayer in school, and sex education.

Coverage includes: education and reform movements; legal issues and landmarks; key education theories; the role of computers and technology in education; bilingual education; violence and crime in schools; and entries on the history, trends, and quality of education in each of the fifty states."@en ;
