What We Do

What We Do

We work to guarantee every child a meaningful educational opportunity to graduate from high school prepared for college, careers, and engaged civic participation. We use legal advocacy, academic research, and collective action to achieve foundational change.


Legal Advocacy

The Center aims to establish a right to meaningful educational opportunity under state constitutions in New York and throughout the country through legal research, advocacy, consultancy, and filing pathbreaking educational reform litigations. 



The Center provides dependable research and analysis to support nationwide efforts to establish strong state constitutional rights to education and to secure the funding needed to uphold those rights for all students.
