Resources for Families and Advocates
Access to public education is a right afforded to all children, regardless of a child’s or guardian’s citizenship, immigration status, or English language proficiency. These rights were upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in its landmark 1982 decision in Plyler v. Doe.
Here you will find resources that can be used by families, advocates, educators and school administrators to understand the responsibilities their schools and districts have to families. These resources can help you advocate for students facing language access or enrollment barriers in public elementary or secondary schools.
