Editor’s Note: This is the beginning of a crowdsourced EdLibrary. Included are documents we have found or people have sent us that we think you will find useful. Don’t take inclusion as an endorsement.
If you’d like to contribute, please send us your name, where you are from, and identify if you have a bent (liberal or conservative; teacher or parent; public school or home school, etc). To curate these resources, we are asking you to submit no more than three resources. Please provide a link to the resource on the Internet. Only public documents will be posted unless you are the author or have permission for us to post.

Education Week’s A to Z Index presents background information on important education issues.
We want you to know where the numbers come from, and we want you to be able to find the data you need by state, school district (LEA), or school. Generally, where we provide information about a source, it is the source’s explanation of themselves, not our explanation of the source. You get to decide who to trust.
