Education for all

We are a movement working to defend the right to public education for every child, no matter who they are or where they were born.

We are a campaign dedicated to protecting access to K-12 public education for every child in the United States, no matter their immigration status.

In its landmark decision in Plyler v. Doe, the U.S. Supreme Court held that states cannot deny access to public schools based on immigration status. The court’s decision reinforced what we already knew: It’s in our collective interest to ensure that every child has access to K-12 public school, no matter how much money their parents have, what they look like, or where they were born. Access to education for every one of us is a cornerstone of a healthy society and a bedrock of our country’s democracy.

We believe everyone in the U.S. should have the freedom to thrive—to be safe in our communities, to care and provide for our families, and to contribute to our country in our own unique ways. Parents work hard to give their children an opportunity for a better future, and a chance to provide for themselves. The foundation of that opportunity is access to education. Together, we are building a broad, deep, and powerful movement to defend the right to public education for every child.
