2006 Education Leadership Institute Now Accepting Applications!
 
The NC Justice Center’s Education and Law Project is accepting applications for its Education Leadership Institute (ELI).  ELI is an education advocacy training program created out of a belief that informed knowledgeable parents and community members are essential to making public education the best that it can be for all students.  ELI is an intensive, 4-day workshop that provides participants with the content knowledge and advocacy skills to improve public education in North Carolina. 

 

  • Learn how federal laws such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and No Child Left Behind (NCLB) can be used to maximize your child’s access to education.
  • Learn how you can work to change practices and policies around short-term and long-term school suspensions.
  • Learn what the Leandro court decision means to your child’s education and how to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to receive the sound basic education mandated by our state constitution.
  • Learn how to become a part of an organized movement to improve the quality of public education in North Carolina.

 
The Justice Center invites you to attend our next ELI to learn about these issues and much more in the area of improving public schools.  This workshop is offered at no cost to you.  The Justice Center will provide workshop materials, food, and accommodations if needed.
