What We Do

Parents for School Options (PSO) advocates at the national, state and local levels for school options that best serve individual students’ learning needs.

The traditional school system works for many students, but some students need the benefit of school choice to reach their full potential.

PSO supports the creation of school options, including charter schools, online schools, magnet schools, open enrollment policies, education savings accounts/scholarship programs and other innovative education models. Additionally, we advocate for free and equal access without restrictions to these schools for all children.

PSO informs lawmakers, policymakers and the public about the benefits of school options through capitol day rallies, legislative meetings, committee hearing testimony, and more.

PSO fights back against threats to school options, advocates for adequate and equitable funding, and dispels myths about innovative education models.
