Parents United has become an important, independent
and powerful voice of citizens at the Minnesota Capitol
committed to advocating – with you – for excellent
public schools for all children. We have spent the last
seven years doing just that and have found
that advocacy works!

Are you asking —
  • Why Parents United?
  • Why do they do what they do?
  • Why should I care?
    Find the answers in our new video!

    Many policymakers are focused more than ever on the short term – the next budget cycle, the next election – instead of what they should be focused on when it comes to education: our children.

    If you’re satisfied with the way things are going, read no further. But if you are concerned about the long-term success of the state and the futures of our children, I invite you to support the efforts of Parents United.

    Parents United for Public Schools is the one resource parents and citizens can depend on to track complex education issues at the Capitol, provide accurate and understandable analysis, and deliver to our elected officials a coordinated and powerful message from the consumers of public education – the children, their families and the communities in which they live. We’re not partisan, but we are passionate about what’s right for kids.

    Like most non-profits, we operate on a lean budget, but unlike many non-profits fully half of our annual revenue comes from individuals like you. I hope you count on us to provide information you can rely on. A gift from you will help us share that information with many others!
     
    The current recession, bad as it is, will come to an end, but shortsighted policies will do lasting damage. Your tax deductible contribution will help to insure that Minnesota’s children will be well prepared for the future. We believe public education is worth fighting for, but we can’t do it without your help. Give today!
