Education

Education

dacaAll children, regardless of immigration status, have the constitutional right to attend our nation’s public (K-12) schools. A quality education can provide low-income immigrants with a path out of poverty. NILC works to increase access to education and has fought to counter laws that would chill immigrant families’ access to school. In partnership with immigrant youth, NILC has helped lead efforts to promote the DREAM Act, which would provide young people who were brought to the U.S. as children with a path to citizenship and access to the higher education they need to be able to contribute fully to the only country they know.
