Education and Justice

Every student deserves access to a quality education and positive school environment, including one free from overly harsh disciplinary policies and practices.

Access to excellent, affordable, and equitable education is the key to success in America. While K-12 educations is primarily administered by the states, the federal government plays an important role in providing funding and guidance. In higher education, the federal government provides grants and loans to students, universities, and academic researchers.

Attorneys general work to ensure students and their families have access to educational opportunities. They prosecute predatory for-profit colleges that mislead students into unmanageable debt. They hold the federal government accountable for its promises to student borrowers and to ensure students remain safe from threats of campus gun violence or sexual assault.
