Who We Are

We Believe!

After decades of lack of funding, complacency in curriculum and repeated failure to engage parents, children in today’s Florida public schools face the single greatest threat to their future and success. Alliance for Public Schools was formed in 2012 by parents and community members who believed that public education must be a shared community value and priority.

In order to accomplish this, the Alliance convenes citizens, community groups and education stakeholders to help them envision what they want for their public schools and collectively make that vision a reality for the benefit of all children.

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.
