About this grant

This grant will provide support to the University of California – Los Angeles for the Civil Rights Project: Education Initiative. Through the initiative, the Civil Rights Project provides research and analysis on the civil rights dimension of two major, interrelated education policy challenges – – the impact of No Child Left Behind and the dropout crisis. During the next phase of this initiative, the Civil Rights Project will continue to develop a model dropout accountability statute for states, extend its research and analysis, monitor the reauthorization of No Child Left Behind, and collaborate with other leading education and policy groups in building supports for greater educational opportunities for poor and minority youth.
