Advocates for Justice and Education
Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc., (AJE) seeks to empower families, youth, and the community to be effective advocates to ensure that children and youth, particularly those who have special needs, receive access to appropriate education and health services.
In 1996, AJE was created as a mechanism to increase parental involvement in the education of children with special needs. AJE uses parent empowerment as a model to address grave injustices in the delivery of services to meet the most basic special education needs. AJE was formed to motivate and educate parents, and those working with parents about the laws that govern special education and related services, and the consequences of institutional negligence and/or inappropriate classification of students with special needs.
