Educational Freedom

Nobody should stop you from sending your child to the school that’s best suited to your family.

Helping Students Thrive

Parents should be free to choose the education they believe will best meet their children’s needs. With educational freedom, each child has the best opportunity to pursue his or her highest potential to flourish and contribute to the world.  

That is why the Liberty Justice Center’s attorneys defend school choice programs that give parents that freedom—and why the Liberty Justice Center fights for the rights of families that choose innovative non-traditional educational models such as microschooling.  

The Liberty Justice Center also stands up for families with children in government schools, defending students’ right to speak freely and be free from arbitrary discrimination, and parents’ right to know and speak out about what goes on at their children’s schools.
