Parents have awakened. Their right to play an active role in ensuring that their children are being educated effectively, and in accordance with traditional American values, is now more important than ever. Effective education, including acquiring English-language reading and writing skills, learning history, civics, math, science, and the arts, without “woke” indoctrination, and participating in physical education and team sports consistent with a student’s biological gender, is a critical part of our nation’s foundation and future. The right to choose a public, charter, private, or parochial school that best suits a student’s needs and a family’s values also is essential for effective education.
Atlantic Legal Foundation is dedicated to advocating for effective education through the legal system and in influential publications. This includes legal advocacy and guidance for the nation’s charter schools and their leaders. Read more about ALF’s activity on behalf of charter schools here.

Charter School Advocacy
Atlantic Legal Foundation has long supported the charter school movement. This support has included the publication of a series of books discussing labor relations in charter schools. Entitled Leveling the Playing Field, each book focused on certain states’ specific labor laws applicable to charters and their effect on sound teacher labor relations.
