This article reports that a series of research briefs on state legislation and achievements in education has been released by the Education Commission of the States (ECS). A compilation of information gathered by ECS through its annual survey of state education activity, the eight-booklet series includes reports on both successful and unsuccessful legislation as well as summaries of selected special projects in the states. Agencies surveyed included state education departments, legislative service agencies, school board associations,and teacher organizations. The first booklet, 1972 Legislation and Achievements Related to Teachers and Other School Personnel, #4, was released in April. Several other booklets do not conform to the legislation and achievement format and are concerned primarily with school finance.
