AFC Releases Organizational Policy Agenda

03.11.2014 | We’re excited to announce the release of Advocates for Children’s first organizational Policy Agenda! Based on our on-the-ground experience helping thousands of families each year navigate the New York City public school system, we identify systemic problems and advocate for policy change to improve educational programs, opportunities, and outcomes for all students.

Our Policy Agenda includes specific proposals regarding:

  • The school-to-prison pipeline and positive approaches to discipline; 
  • Students with disabilities; 
  • English Language Learners and language access; 
  • School stability for students in temporary housing or foster care; 
  • Access to high-quality early childhood education programs; 
  • Multiple pathways to high school graduation; and 
  • Protection from discrimination for students in traditional public schools and charter schools.
