If schools don’t reopen due to the Coronavirus crisis, what about the kids?
The ACLJ is working to offer relief to parents and students to keep education first.
Teachers unions and the far Left are trying to restrict educational options at the exact moment we need them the most.
Many parents (including single moms and dads) can’t stay home. Some homes don’t have proper Internet access or essential equipment like laptops for their kids. Some rely on meals provided at school.
Our tax dollars are still going to these schools, but they aren’t providing classroom learning or comprehensive resources. Some states are even restricting distance learning opportunities.
Disadvantaged children are falling further and further behind. How is that fair?
Quality education isn’t a privilege. It’s a right, guaranteed by every state in the nation. It’s time to put kids first. It’s time to demand our tax dollars go where parents need them.
We are representing families across America, free of charge. We’re developing out-of-the-box solutions. We’re reaching out to local school boards to work with parents. But if localities allow our children’s future to be held hostage to the radical Left teachers unions, we’ll go to court. We're already sending legal letters to school districts charging EXTRA for kids to be in the classroom. But we need you to take action with us.
As we aggressively advocate for families to receive essential educational resources during the pandemic and quality education for every child, we need your support.

To our delight, the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to review another school choice case, this one involving Maine’s school choice program. We wrote about the case, Carson v. Makin , in a previous article . As we explained, In Maine, the majority of school districts do not have a public high school.
Protecting the right of parents to choose the best schooling option for their children would solve so many problems. It would help defuse – or at least provide an escape route from – the politicization of the government-run schools. It would allow parents to select a school environment that accords...
