The Project

My project expands the organization's education law practice into rural communities and municipalities in southern Minnesota. Many have seen a recent influx of immigrants and refugees, and I provide legal representation and community education to ensure that students in these communities overcome barriers to a quality education. The barriers they face include inadequate services for children with disabilities; discriminatory treatment in discipline; academic tracking; and the failure to address the needs of students learning English.
