We decided it was time to drop the “.org” because we are more than just a website (and, it’s 2018). Last week our coalition, formerly known as PublicSchoolOptions.org, announced a new name to more accurately reflect its mission: National Coalition for Public School Options (PSO).
You can still call us PSO for short.
PSO is the nation’s leading parent education advocacy organization with active chapters in more than 30 states. The coalition is a national alliance of parents that supports and defends parents’ rights to access the best public school options for their children.
PSO supports the creation of public school options, including charter schools, online schools, magnet schools, open enrollment policies, and other innovative education programs. Additionally, PSO advocates for equal access without restrictions to these public schools for all children.
PSO and its parent board of directors lead national and state-based advocacy initiatives that (1) focus on education policies that empower parents with more school choice options; (2) eliminate access barriers families face in choosing the school that works best for their children; and (3) ensure parents, not bureaucrats, are trusted with their children’s education decisions.
PSO mobilizes thousands of parents across the country to help them advocate for greater access to school choice and push back against policies that undermine parent choice.
