Education Equity & Students’ Rights
Every child has the right to a fair, adequate education. Yet despite the Supreme Court’s ringing endorsement of students’ rights in the landmark Tinker decision, constitutional violations are far too common in public schools in Delaware and across the country. Through education and legal action, the ACLU of Delaware works to ensure all children receive the education they deserve. We challenge inequitable and unfair funding. We fight to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline so that our education systems open up doors of opportunities, instead of putting kids behind bars. And we protect the rights of all students — especially students of color, students with disabilities, and students who are female and/or LGBT.
