Earlier this year, parent advocates from across the country took planes, trains, and automobiles out to our nation’s capital, Washington DC. Why? To learn how to more effectively advocate for public school options for their children.
All of these parents have their own school choice story. They come from different backgrounds and all have a different set of experiences. But, they find unity around a simple slogan: I Trust Parents.
No matter what option their families have chosen, our “advocacy boot campers” believe that educational choice can empower students, elevate learning outcomes, and cultivate 21st century skills. At boot camp, our parents learned how to tell these stories of success.
Check out the video below from the PSO Advocacy Boot Camp 2016, and the Facebook photo album, both of which document the hard work (and good times!) of these AMAZING parents!
