What is school choice?
School choice is the process of allowing every family to choose the K-12 educational options that best fit their children. Every child is unique, and all children learn differently. Some children might succeed at the neighborhood public school, while others might fit in better at a charter, magnet, online, private or home learning environment. That’s why school choice is so important! These options include all forms of education, from traditional public schools, to public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.
Every child deserves an effective, challenging, and motivating education. And, because each student has their own unique set of talents, interests, and challenges, having a variety of options in education is crucial. What works well for one child may not work well for another child! In short, school choice ensures that each student can find a learning environment that allows them to be inspired, successful, and happy.
About the Parent Union
The Parent Union is a coalition of parents, parent groups, education reform advocates and community leaders dedicated to advancing meaningful education policies, accountability and choice in California’s K-12 education system.
For the last several decades, California’s public school system has been controlled by the state’s powerful teachers union lobby. The result is a school system where 8 out of 10 students can’t meet grade level math standards and more than half of students don’t read at grade-level. Teachers unions spend hundreds of millions of dollars in teacher member dues each year for lobbying and political spending to oppose every effort to hold schools — and teachers unions — accountable for failing California’s kids.
Today, parents throughout California have said “enough is enough.” Parents are standing up for students and families at school board meetings, demanding action by state legislators, and running for their local school board to right what is wrong with California’s schools.
Parent Union provides training and resources to our members, and brings parents and education reform advocates together to learn, lead and win in the battle to transform California’s education system so that every child receives the high-quality education they deserve.
