School Reform & Dropout Prevention
NWLC has worked since 1972 to ensure equal educational opportunities and has worked since Congress enacted Title IX to advance and protect the rights of students in educational institutions. NWLC believes that all children should have equal access to high quality education programs and that federal education policy must ensure that all students can benefit equally from rigorous academic standards. We advocate for education reforms that will help improve graduation rates and post-secondary success for all students, with a particular focus on girls of color, who are dropping out of school at high rates and who are often overlooked in conversations about school reform.
