The Education Justice Alliance is a group of concerned individuals in Wake County working for a reduction in the number of public school students pushed off the academic track through unfair suspensions, harsh discipline policies, and academic failure. EJA is a non-partisan grassroots group that participates in civic engagement efforts.
The Education Justice Alliance (EJA) works for an educational system that is effective, equitable, and inclusive. We promote racial, socio-economic, and gender equity. We seek to decrease unfair suspensions and expulsions, and to improve positive approaches to discipline that meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of all students.
An elected five-person leadership team makes up EJA’s steering committee. Steering committee members serve for one year. This leadership team makes decisions on behalf of the group, honors our democratic process, upholds our principles of unity, and serves as media and public spokespersons.
