Education Equity

The ACLU supports and defends equal rights and opportunities for all students.

High quality education so all may reach their highest potential.

Education is the key to strengthening our communities, our economy, and our democracy. Given this, education should be prioritized in the allocation of public funding and other resources.

We support and defend equal rights and opportunities for all students, regardless of their economic background, linguistic ability, race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion, mental or physical disability, or sexual orientation.

Every student should get to attend a school that provides a high quality education free from discrimination.

We work for and support the rights of all students to a clean school, safe learning environment, adequate instructional materials, and qualified teachers.

We support the creation of a culture of success at all schools and within all communities so that all students strive to reach their fullest potential.
