Who We Are

Welcome! The Public Education Committee's mission is to protect and advance: 1) the right of equal access and opportunity to public education for all people; 2) the rights and responsibilities of students, parents, teachers and administrators within the public school system; and 3) an understanding of civic responsibility within the public education system.

To accomplish these goals the Committee works both independently and through partnerships with interested entities within and without the ABA, to develop, support and promote policies safeguarding the right to public education for all on equal terms. The Committee also works with partners to sponsor and/or create forums for discussion of public education issues within the legal community and the general public, as well as design programs to educate students, parents and teachers in their civic rights and responsibilities.
