Track the actions of local school boards and educational policies at the district, state, and federal levels. Invite a principal or panel of educational leaders to speak at your church. Congregations can help community leaders identify the root causes of economic injustice and how inequality affects children and their schools. Church leaders can also assist with organizing parents and teachers to create better schools.
