Partnership for Educational Justice
Every child deserves great schools and the lifelong opportunities they afford. Yet too often, outdated policies hold back schools and limit families’ options. We challenge unfair education policies and propose common sense solutions through advocacy and legal action. Our first project is in New York, helping students fight laws that deny them access to great teachers.
We’re committed to reclaiming the promise of public education for all students. Our passionate team of parent leaders, education advocates and legal experts empowers local communities to strengthen their schools by pursuing common sense policy changes. We provide the resources and support families need to get the schools they deserve.

Share Your StoryWe help families fight against outdated laws that keep poorly-performing teachers in the classroom and make it harder for schools to keep their best teachers. Laws like these are keeping millions of children in New York, Minnesota, and across the country from getting the great public education they deserve. We want to hear how outdated policies have affected your family and others in your community. We’d also like to hear your perspective on why it’s so important that all students have the opportunity to learn from great teachers. Share your story with us using the form below.
