Help us build an alliance of educational advocates including families, community members, and attorneys
Hundreds of children in Nebraska go without any supports to access educational services to which they have a right. No other non-profit in Nebraska is focused specifically on serving under-resourced public PK-12 school students.There is an extensive knowledge gap about public PK-12 educational rights and responsibilities across all communities, neighborhoods, and stakeholders.
Education Rights Counsel's vision is that all children stay in school and thrive. Its mission is to create systemic change by removing legal barriers to educational equity. ERC generates systemic change by equalizing access to advocacy and legal representation for under-resourced families with a focus on special education support and student discipline. Via individual representation, research, and training, ERC partners with multiple individuals and organizations to build understanding through education and engagement.
