Organizations

The Forum works with many of the following organizations to advocate for more equitable educational practices. Along with them we are committed to erasing the educational debt we owe many of our underserved students. You are invited to contact any of the following to join their efforts for an equitable system of public schools across the nation.

  • Education Justice  Education Justice at Education Law Center seeks high quality educational opportunity for all children, including low-income and minority children, children learning English, and children with disabilities. As part of ELC, EdJustice offers support services to a network of litigators and other education advocates across the country to secure the Opportunity To Learn and equity in funding and learning resources. EdJustice and ELC help advocates press state and federal policymakers to extend the excellence in wealthy suburban schools to low-wealth urban and rural communities and children.
  • National Education Policy Center  The mission of the National Education Policy Center is to produce and disseminate high-quality, peer-reviewed research to inform education policy discussions. We are guided by the belief that the democratic governance of public education is strengthened when policies are based on sound evidence.
  • National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER)  The National Network for Educational Renewal is a network dedicated to the simultaneous renewal of schools and the institutions that prepare our teachers.   Its work is based on the four-part mission of providing equal access to quality learning for all students, promoting responsible stewardship of our schools and universities, improving teaching and learning through pedagogy that nurtures and challenges all learners, and providing students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become fully engaged participants in our democratic society.
