Welcome to FindLaw's section on Arkansas education laws, intended to help you better understand the statutes (and federal laws) that govern public education. While public schools are administered at the state level, using primarily state funds, federal law figures prominently. For instance, school prayer is limited by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits the establishment (or promotion) of any one religion but also allows for religious expression. Other topics in this section include the use of corporal punishment in schools and the protection of sensitive student records.
