It’s been over six decades since the Supreme Court declared that “separate but equal” schools were unconstitutional under the law but educational inequity and under-resourced, overpoliced schools continue to prevent students of color from pursuing an education and reaching their full potential.

LCCRSF’s Education Program works to achieve equity for students of color and English language learners across California by leveraging the law to ensure that no student is kept out of school, harassed, or policed because of their race or ethnicity. We address issues of enrollment, discrimination, harassment, discipline, and school desegregation, and protect the rights of students of color, immigrant students, and English language learners in California’s public schools.
