What we do
Parents for Public Schools is involved in public school advocacy and reform through distinctive, important work to influence the factors that impact student success and improve schools. PPS believes that parents are owners of their public schools and provides programs that prepare parents for the responsibilities of ownership.
Parents for Public Schools’ power and impact are derived from the work of its national network of chapters. With 15 chapters in 12 states to date, PPS chapters provide a vehicle for parents to organize and develop their own credibility and power. Through local chapters, parents become dynamic and informed partners with their school systems. Specifically, chapters guide and train parents to work with school and community leaders to develop informed solutions to pressing problems.
