Know Your Rights
as Students & Parents…
Anywhere, Anytime.

The EdRights App from the Education Justice Program puts answers to your education rights questions at your fingertips.

EdRights App

We keep kids in school by addressing unequal, race-based school practices. We also help kids get a quality education, whether they are in school, suspended or expelled.

We can help if a child is

  • Receiving special education services that do not meet the child’s needs
  • Homeless and having problems enrolling in school
  • Suspended out-of-school or expelled with little or no schoolwork
  • Being asked to teach themselves on a computer or phone

We offer

  • FREE civil legal help
  • FREE workshops for students, parents, and caregivers
  • FREE workshops for churches and community groups

The Education Justice Program works to disrupt the “School-to-Prison-Pipeline” by ensuring that every child receives a good education, in a safe school, no matter what a child looks like or where a child is from. Our mission is to make that happen.
