Is improving the quality of education in public schools a top priority for members of your organization or community? If so, then you are not alone. Increasingly, grassroots organizations around the country are organizing around public school issues and winning substantive change. This excellent web-based guide provides brief descriptions of the different pieces of the education puzzle, with links to more detailed information and additional resources that readers can go to if they want to explore a topic further. The guide is designed to help education advocates begin to think about ways of approaching local campaigns, thinking about a power analysis and understanding the basics of No Child Left Behind and school funding. Included are sections outlining the purposes of education organizing and strategies for effectively mobilizing the public to demand high-quality public education for all children.
