The ABC’s of Adequate School Funding Webinar
The ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice would like to inform bar staff and volunteers of the resolutions, programming, and publications created by its Education Committee over the past year.  The CRSJ Education Committee works both independently and through partnerships with interested entities within and without the ABA, to develop, support and promote policies safeguarding the right to public education for all on equal terms. Its upcoming webinar on Thursday, March 8, 2018, at 3:30 p.m. EST, The ABC’s of Adequate School Funding, will address the troubling conditions in inadequately funded school districts and the resulting impact on students and teachers. The webinar is free to the public and those interested may register here.  The section recently passed three ABA resolutions and developed two publications, which are available as resources on the internet.  Please click here for more information from the CRSJ Education Committee. Bar execs, please share this with your officers and/or other interested members.
