Parents in Action

Minnesota public schools urgently need your support.

There are many different ways you can take action.  Chief among them is becoming involved at the local level.  If your child’s school doesn’t have a parent group, form one.  If the schools in your district have parent groups, get them together!  Share your stories.  Create a plan to bring your collective voice to your local community and elected officials.
