Issues in Education
This issue of Bill of Rights in Action examines issues relating to the education system in the U.S. Each article provides a look at the system from a different perspective: a historical account of its problems and successes; a contemporary evaluation of criticisms and suggested reforms; and a comparison with the Japanese school system.
Although a right to education is not specified within the Bill of Rights, we at Constitutional Rights Foundation recognize that education serves as the primary means by which we all can develop an understanding and appreciation for the freedoms and liberties guaranteed to us by the Bill of Rights. Furthermore, we believe that our freedom to learn is a prime example of the basic liberties which were so important to the founders of this nation, and which remain a fundamental part of our lives today.
