Far too often, community members underestimate how pivotal their role is in public education. As tax-payers, citizens are owners of public schools and have a right to partner with them to increase student achievement. Because stronger schools lead to stronger communities, it is important for all community members, not just parents, to use their voices in order to positively impact public education.

Parents for Public Schools empowers members with essential knowledge and skills that allow them to navigate the education system and to use their voices to create change within local systems.

For 30 years, PPS has worked diligently to improve schools for our nation’s students by developing public school advocates and leaders. We know that, when our members acquire this knowledge, they are well-equipped to serve as leaders in schools and school districts.
