Advocacy efforts support public policies that acknowledge and support the role of Catholic schools and other nonpublic education institutions and have the best interests of all students. Efforts work to affirm the rights of all parents to choose schools that best fit the educational needs of their children, and advocate for equitable participation of nonpublic school students in state and federal education programs.
