The national Students Matter communications and advocacy campaign leverages the lawsuit as a platform to reframe the debate around education reform to focus on protecting the rights and serving the best interests of students. Through its communications and engagement strategy, Students Matter provides a unique opportunity for parents, students, teachers and administrators to personalize the real impact on students of the laws challenged by Vergara v. California and gather broad-based support for the case. Students Matter advances the protection of students’ rights as the primary goal of education reform by building relationships with media, other education and civil rights advocacy organizations, and leaders in education, government, and business.
