Student Advocacy Center is the only independent organization providing free, non-legal advocacy for students in both general and special education. SAC has been advocating for students since 1975 through individual case advoacy, technical assistance and educational support. SAC works to ensure Michigan’s most vulnerable students stay in school and realize their right to a quality public education.
“SAC is deeply committed to helping the students who need it the most -Â students in foster care, students with mental illness or a learning disability, students struggling with disciplinary issues and those thinking about dropping out,” said SAC Executive Director Peri Stone-Palmquist. “Education is key for these students and we are thrilled to share some of their stories.”
