Education

RILS represents parents and students in a variety of educational issues. The need for systemic change and legal advocacy for low-income families in educational matters is demonstrated by data reported by Kids Count concerning the quality of the schools low-income children attend. The Education Law Group provides advocacy and client representation to improve the quality of public education for low-income students and enable families to address their public education problems that include: inappropriate education problems; special education problems; bilingual and vocational education problems; and School discipline and residency problems.
