Education Rights of Immigrant Students & Families

“The purpose of the booklet is to educate immigrant parents about state and federal laws guaranteeing them access to public school services and materials in their home languages. Excerpts from these laws are quoted in the first section along with helpful summaries of what this legal terminology means for parents. Some of the laws described are not directly related to language access but contain important information that immigrant parents need to know.”

This toolkit was made possible by “A Voice for Immigrant Children,” a project of the New Jersey Immigration Policy Network funded by the Schumann Foundation.
Portions of this toolkit were adapted from the presentation “Ensuring Effective Services to Immigrant &/or LEP/ELL Children & Families: It’s Right, & It’s the Law!” © Statewide Parent Advocacy Network
