Overview: New York State Archives States’ Impact on Federal Education Policy Project (SIFEPP)
While U.S. education policy is widely discussed and often well documented, the impact of states on that policy receives much less attention. In response, SIFEPP is creating a continually growing public resource on the role of states in shaping pre-K–12 federal education policy since the mid-twentieth century.
This project is a national initiative led by the New York State Archives and funded by The New York Community Trust – Wallace Foundation Special Projects Fund.
The New York State Archives is part of the Office of Cultural Education, an office of the New York State Education Department.
