The Education Rights Network works to develop and strengthen a broad-based and representative group of parent leaders to achieve fully resourced, inclusive, quality education, from birth to 21. A member organization of the Dignity in Schools Campaign (DSC) and the Journey for Justice Alliance, EdRights takes collective action to achieve disability and racial equity in Pittsburgh Public Schools. EdRights opposes overly punitive and exclusionary discipline practices that push students out of school and into the juvenile or criminal justice system.
