Education Justice Network is a collaboration of six nationally recognized research, advocacy, and policy scholars and organizations that work together to promote educational equity and opportunity for students of color and other traditionally underserved students. EJN asserts the value and necessity of a strong public education system as a fundamental public good. EJN’s activities aim to improve all children’s access to high-quality education by advancing evidence-based, community-oriented reform models that provide alternatives to market- and standards-based reform.

EJN offers collaboration and support to its members’ education justice efforts through face-to-face meetings, conference calls, work groups, and online forums.
