Education Resources

This guide offers suggested starting points and resources when researching with Connecticut state and federal government information. The page on General Resources for Student Research may also help.

The primary audience is intended to be History Day students, although teachers, parents and other researchers may find this useful as well.

Many topics in the field of education will overlap with other social sciences (psychology, sociology, etc.) as well as social services (aid to the poor, mental health, etc.). It is hard to separate them out at times.
