United Church of Christ: Education as Civil and Human Right

Filed under: Civil Rights Movement Today — millerlf @ 8:56 pm

The United Church of Christ (UCC) has taken the stand that the conventional wisdom on school reform is wrong and the church needs to care about it. In a recent message, the UCC said “all children have the right to an opportunity to learn, not as a matter of competition or where they live, but as a civil and human right. We must guarantee all students access to high-quality early education, highly effective teachers, college-preparatory curriculum, and equitable instructional materials and polices.”

The full message can be found at http://www.ucc.org/justice/public-education/pdfs/Message-12-web-version.pdf.
