1. People who influence schools:
local school boards
state departments of education
federal Department of Education
communities (pass or reject requests for money)

-- school board members
-- textbook publishers
and undoubtedly many more. How does each group fit into the "education" world?
The effects of states' standards are different in each state, so read widely and take good notes.
