Education Justice

Communities of color are too often denied access to quality public education that is accountable to their communities, and as a result attend schools that are underfunded, under-resourced, and often subject to closure or corporate takeover. Advancement Project and our partners are leading the way in supporting the strengthening of public schools and opposing corporate takeover of public education. Our Quality Education for All campaign works with partners, allies and policymakers to secure equitable, high-quality public schools for all children.

In advance of Secretary DeVos’ keynote address to the Education Writers Association in Baltimore, Advancement Project National Office is providing a media preview to a resource we have developed in order to underscore how the policies being passed by this administration help to uphold a history of criminalizing Black and Brown youth. As Advancement Project enters our 20th year and continues our decades-long fight to dismantle structural racism, we are excited to share our new #AssaultAt map, created in collaboration with the Alliance for Educational Justice (AEJ).
