Keeping the Promise
Education and Afghan Resettlement

"The U.S. Department of Education is proud to offer this collection of materials and tools to help educators and communities provide educational opportunity to our Afghan allies of every age," said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. "It is so important that all learners across our nation—including our Afghan allies—have access to high-quality and culturally responsive academic resources, and I am encouraged that the Department is supporting this effort."

Secretary of Education, Miguel A. Cardona


Welcome to the U.S. Department of Education's repository of resources for communities as they seek to provide educational services to our Afghan guests. As part of Operation Allies Welcome, we recognize that there is an immediate and urgent need for providing high-quality, culturally responsive education to our Afghan guests – inclusive of primary, secondary, postsecondary, and adult education and English language learning. Recognizing that our Afghan allies and their families protected our troops, supported our diplomatic community, and served our country, we will now serve them with equitable, excellent education as we welcome them to our country.

To this end, we have curated a collection of educational resources, student and family engagement resources, fact sheets to ensure civil rights to education, policy documents, and general cultural and linguistic facts to help guide State Education Agencies (SEAs), Local Education Agencies (LEAs), Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), and other community-based education providers. The U.S. Department of Education does not officially endorse these resources, but we are happy to add new resources that communities created or found particularly useful in serving our Afghan guests. Our Afghan allies served us; let us Keep our Promise by providing educational services and supports to them.
