I am studying IT. I am currently at the users, groups, and permissions category in my course. Awesome right. Problem is, I have win8.1 basic. Which doesn't include local users and groups, or group policy editor, or secpol, or any program as far as I can see that works to control resources or policies. I don't believe it.

Every single one of the tools that they are teaching in my A+ course book only applies to windows pro versions. I have spent 8 hours searching online for an answer to how to control groups permissions in basic versions and the only thing any of the search results say is, this tool (all of them) are only available in pro versions and up. So, let me get this straight. Microsoft has no tool available for controlling group policies for local machines in any basic editions? Other than NTFS file/folder permissions in the properties dialog box? Which, would be incredibly exhausting to have to physically go from folder to folder setting specific permissions for a whole machine. There has got to be a more efficient tool for organizing sharing of resources.

You should be able to do local group policy: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731745%28v=ws.11%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

Windows has a 180 day free trial of Winserver2008R2 which you can load into a VM.

I would be using that for a test.
