ETS, N.J. Law Center Expand Advocacy Work

The Educational Testing Service and the Education Law Center have teamed up to develop a national program to support advocacy efforts on behalf of low-income and minority students.

The program, which will include a Web site and a symposium in May, will be aimed at advocates, policymakers, and lawyers seeking to improve schools that serve such students. It represents an expansion of the work that the law center has done in New Jersey, where it has represented the plaintiffs in the Abbott v. Burke funding lawsuit.

The Education Law Center, based in Newark, already has a nationwide program called “Starting at 3” to support the inclusion of prekindergarten classes in school finance litigation and state legislation. The new program, to be directed by Michael Nettles, a senior vice president of the Princeton, N.J.-based ETS, will build on that program.
