This guide provides strategies and resources to support community organizing for education reform. It is designed for community organizations that have some previous experience with organizing and want to tackle disparities in the education system. The guide outlines how organizing for education reform differs from other organizing efforts. It explores how to build a base of local parents and community members, choose issues and make a plan, collect data on local education issues, forge alliances, and build relationships with schools. Many examples from the field are included. It also features a bibliography of outside resources divided by helpful categories such as intermediaries and research organizations, case studies, webinars, films, and books.
