    As-Modifier, Form and Meaning

    For these three sentences:

    1. The law as it applies to education curriculums does not affect this school.
    2. The law does not affect this school.
    3. The way the law applies to education curriculums does not affect this school.

    Could it be that sentence 1 is closer in form/structure to sentence 2 than to sentence 3?
    Also, could it be that sentence 1 is closer in meaning to sentence 3 than to sentence 2?

    Yes. Note that the preferred plural of curriculum is curricula. Curriculums isn't wrong, but it's less common that curricula.

    @Bernstein Is it yes to both questions, or yes to one question and no to the other?
