CRLA’s Rural Education Equity Program (REEP) challenges policies and practices that limit students’ access to full educational services or that limit students’ opportunities later in life.
REEP is focused on targeted, outcome-oriented advocacy to reduce education disparities for low-income, immigrant, communities of color, and other vulnerable communities in rural areas of California by engaging in:
- direct representation of individuals and groups.
- developing and implementing outreach and education strategies.
- responding to legislative requests.
- participating in public rulemaking that has an impact on education in rural communities.
