Who We Are

We Believe!

Alliance for Public Schools was formed in Florida in 2012 in response to chronically low public school funding, educator pay that ranks near the bottom of the country, and harmful policies for students.

Alliance for Public Schools was founded by parents and community members who believe that public education must be a shared community value and priority, worthy of investment. Together, we champion meaningful engagement in support of students, educators and our public schools and advocate for increased funding and policies that promote student success.

We believe- through education, engagement and inspiration- families and communities will collectively support high quality public schools and the children who attend them to ensure their future success.
