Public Education Partners is an organization dedicated to the support of publicly accountable Ohio schools for all. It was formed as a statewide group to help unite the growing numbers of advocates who believe that public education matters.
Diane Ravitch recently wrote that Public Education Partners is waking up the resistance to the destruction and privatization of public education. http://dianeravitch.net/2015/10/22/ohio-supporters-of-public-education-say-build-it-and-they-will-come/
Help us build the resistance of parents and other public schools supporters who will fight the school privatization agenda for their children and their communities. Join one of these public education advocacy groups in your area, or connect with friends and neighbors to form your own.
