About Us

 

 

The National Coalition for Public School Options (PSO) is a national alliance of parents that supports and defends parents’ rights to access the best public school options for their children. The coalition supports the creation of public school options, including charter schools, online schools, magnet schools, open enrollment policies, and other innovative education programs. Additionally, we advocate for free and equal access without restrictions to these public schools for all children.

The National Coalition for Public School Options advocates at the national, state and local levels for public school options that best serve individual students’ learning needs.
PSO informs lawmakers, policymakers and the public about the benefits of public school options through capitol day rallies, legislative meetings, committee hearing testimony, and more.
PSO fights back against threats to public school options, advocates for adequate and equitable funding, and dispels myths about innovative public schools.
