About Us

Education Justice at Education Law Center seeks high quality educational opportunity for all children, including low-income and minority children, children learning English, and children with disabilities.

As part of ELC, EdJustice offers support services to a network of litigators and other education advocates across the country to secure the Opportunity To Learn and equity in funding and learning resources. EdJustice and ELC help advocates press state and federal policymakers to extend the excellence in wealthy suburban schools to low-wealth urban and rural communities and children by:

  • Promoting and facilitating collaborations, partnerships and networks to strengthen advocacy in and across states
  • Providing assistance to equity advocates, especially those involved in legal action and policy initiatives
  • Analyzing policy and research in key equity areas, including school funding and preschool, and disseminating information on best research and policies
  • Sponsoring and participating in conferences and other forums to promote educational quality and equity

The annual Education Justice Award honors outstanding service and commitment to advancing equal educational opportunity for public school children across the U.S. Each spring, ELC hosts an awards ceremony and reception to honor individuals and organizations for their commitment to public education. The reception is also an important fundraising event; contributions and proceeds from ticket sales help maintain ELC as a champion of educational equity.
