Parents are the ultimate experts on their children, yet they are rarely consulted about the education policies that impact their children’s lives. So PAVE steps in, empowering DC parents to engage in the policymaking process and demand great schools for every child. Trained parent leaders serve on Ward-based and city-wide Parent Leader in Education Boards, meet with elected officials, mobilize other parents, and build targeted campaigns. PAVE equips them with information and resources, and also partners directly with schools, state agencies, and policymakers to improve their family engagement practices. Here’s how it comes together: in 2018, PAVE parents identified out-of-school programming as a top priority. Their activism resulted in a $10.5 million budget increase to support these activities – a huge win for DC families. We need more wins to secure what we all want –excellent schools for all.
