The mission of the Education Law Center (ELC) is to ensure public school children access to an equal and high quality education. Over the past year, they expanded their efforts to achieve that goal using the innovative advocacy strategies presented in this report. Highlights include: (1) Providing legal services to 479 low income and disadvantaged students, the highest number in ELC's history, as well as responding to hundreds of requests for help from advocates, attorneys, community organizations, and state and local leaders; (2) Expanding the assistance ELC offers to advocates and attorneys seeking to address educational inequity in states across the nation; (3) Intensifying their efforts to support coalitions, campaigns and networks of local and statewide advocacy organizations working to advance education equity, with special emphasis on sustaining the landmark Abbott reforms; and (4) Working to hold education officials accountable for performance, and to expand the successful programs, such as their nationally acclaimed Abbott preschool program; and (5) Opening a satellite office in Camden to better serve students in the state's southern region and to build local capacity among Camden community stakeholders.
