EDFN 604 - Education and Public Policy: Home

Background Information on Policy and Problems in Education

Below are links to resources that will help you to identify topics in education policy, understand the history and context of the problems presented, and give you some citations to sources.  CQ Researcher can be searched by individual topics, but it is probably best to browse the entire database under the heading for Education to find the issues that focused on topics in education. 

Finding Articles from Published Journals

The following links will open databases that Millersville University Library subscribes to.  Each database contains some unique content, but there will also be some overlap.  The Education Research Complete and ERIC databases allow you to search across scholarly journals and trade magazines specific to the discipline of Education.  The Academic Search Complete database allows you to search across journals and magazines from a broad spectrum of discipline-specific and general interest literature.  It would be a good place to look for articles from news publication, journals in fields such as history, sociology, law, and government studies that may cover education policy topics from a different perspective. 

Finding articles in indvidual journals and websites

There are some important and useful publications that are not represented fully in our aggregate databases like Education Research Complete, etc., so I need to provide a separate link to them.
