In keeping with the functions of the Office of Education, the Laws and Legislation Branch is presenting a brief resume of the laws having statewide educational implication enacted by the 46 State legislatures which met in 1957. This publication was prepared in response to requests from Chief State School Officers and other educators and specialists, and in compliance with the Branch policy to exchange information relating to educational laws with personnel of State Departments and other interested educators. An unprecedented number of laws of significance to education were enacted by the States during 1957. Legislatures in all States except Virginia and Kentucky met in regular or special session, or both. No attempt is made here to evaluate the educational significance of each act or to indicate the frequency of activity in a given area of legislation. As reported an act may introduce or modify one or many educational achievements. It is listed under the heading with which it is most closely associated. During 1957, the following matters received noteworthy attention: (1) Administration and organization; (2) Financial support; (3) Higher education; (4) Personnel; (5) School building construction; (6) Special education; and (7) Students. An index is included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
