Last month the National Coalition for Public School Options (PSO) hosted the 11th annual Parent Advocacy Boot Camp in Washington, DC. Nearly 100 passionate parent advocates from across the country gathered to learn about school choice advocacy and how best to help all children have access to the educational option that best fits their needs.
Attendees heard from school choice champion Congressman Paul Mitchell (R-MI), National School Choice Week president Andrew Campanella, and Jim Blew from the United States Department of Education.
Virginia Delegate Dickie Bell talked with parents about what state legislators want to hear from parents and how to effectively deliver a message in front of lawmakers.
Parents also learned how to put together an effective advocacy plan to ensure their choice for their children’s education will be protected.
At PSO we fight for children and we fight to protect a parent’s choice.
