State laws governing education tend to vary quite a bit from one state to another, and Alaska is no exception. This section covers some of the statutes relating to schools and the procurement of education in Alaska, including compulsory education laws, the use of corporal punishment, and the privacy of public school records. Since federal law prohibits the establishment of religion in public schools, Alaska (like many other states) only allows a non-specific "minute of silence" before school starts, in which students may silently pray if they choose.
