Discrimination and Rights Around Education
Learn About Your Issue
This category covers situations in which people face discrimination when trying to access quality education. This could be based on disabilities, race, ethnicity, language, gender, or other factors. It also covers what rights people have to education.
Anyone who believes that an education institution that receives federal financial assistance has discriminated against someone on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability or age, or who believes that a public elementary or secondary school, or state or local education agency has violated the Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act, may file a complaint. The person or organization filing the complaint need not be a victim of the alleged discrimination but may complain on behalf of another person or group.
