For help with an education-related matter, call Pegasus at (505) 244-1101. You will be scheduled for a telephone call with a lawyer or advocate who will gather preliminary information about your case to determine whether we can help. If Pegasus cannot take your case, we will do our best to refer you to another lawyer or agency that can. Please be patient, as the need for these services far exceeds the resources available.
The ultimate goal of our educational advocacy is to ensure equal access to quality educational services for all children. To achieve this long-term goal, we have identified the following three specific priority issues: (1) Creating substantive school discipline reform, including the decriminalization of school misconduct and the removal of harsh disciplinary practices from our public schools; (2) Ensuring equal access to public education for special and vulnerable populations; and (3) Ensuring the provision of high quality educational services, including the use of evidence-based practices, adequate language supports, and the expansion of early childhood education.
