The Campaign for Quality Education is a statewide coalition in California. Its made of of grassroots, youth, civil rights, policy and research organizations committed to educational equity for all communities in California’s public schools.
The CQE leads strategic campaigns that integrate our strengths in community organizing, research, legal and policy advocacy to achieve equitable and just education policies. They engage communities of color and low-income communities to actively develop state and local education policy agendas, inspire a public consciousness that genuinely values education, and advance the movement for racial, social and economic justice.
CQE believes that youth, parents, teachers and communities have the collective power to shape a just and equitable public education system.
Organizations that are involved include Asian Pacific Islander Youth Promoting Advocacy & Leadership (AYPAL); San Francisco and Sacramento Youth Together (YT); Statewide Inner City Struggle (ICS) and other youth-driven education organizations, among others.
