Advocacy initiatives of ACSI encompass a broad range of efforts answering the question “Why Christian education matters?" Our focus in the Public Policy & Legal Affairs Department, is in teaching and defending the legal and cultural basis for parental choice, private school autonomy and religious liberty through school trainings and engagement with legislatures, regulators, and the courts.

State Networks

Education policy is inherently local and building our collective voices on a state-by-state basis will impact local policy. Our goal is to continue adding new state networks of Christian schools so Christian school voices can be heard by policy makers.
