Get Involved to Expand Educational Opportunities for Your Child

Why Should I Get Involved?

School choice allows families to choose the type of education that is best for each child. Despite the name, school choice is NOT about schools – it’s about kids and families.  

Each child deserves to have their individual needs met. Sometimes that means a public school is the best option, but other times students need another option. That’s where school choice programs come in. They allow parents to choose the educational setting that is the best fit for their family.  

It’s important for lawmakers to hear from families about how schools –public, private, charter, or homeschool—are meeting kids’ needs. Sharing your family’s story can help legislators understand the problems so that they can begin to find solutions that will ensure an appropriate education that will meet the needs of every child in Pennsylvania.
