Several Parents Across America (PAA) members developed this position paper based on a workshop titled “What is a quality education?” presented at PAA’s leadership conference in Washington DC in the summer of 2014. Special thanks go to Deb Mayer of Oregon Save our Schools, Danielle Arnold-Schwartz of PAA-Suburban Philadelphia, Lisa Fluke of PAA-Ventura County, and Julie Woestehoff, PAA Board secretary for creating a paper based on the input of our membership.

No set of bullet points can fully capture the complexities of a quality education, but this position paper reflects a common vision of the kind of schooling we, as members of Parents Across America, want for our children.
