Together We Can Make a Difference in 
Pennsylvania Education

ALL children, regardless of economic status or zip code, should have full access to a wealth of quality education options to suit them.  Come and join us in working to improve the educational opportunities of ALL 1.7 million children in Pennsylvania!

 

 

Allow me to submit factual information, insight, and personal experience.  This is a complex conversation, and it will require a complex solution, but to promote a policy that takes from students in need of education options without adequate facts and information is irresponsible and harmful to those children.

 

 

“I believe that children are by design curious thinkers, problem solvers and learn the best through play.  Homeschooling doesn’t mean schooling at home all the time.  It means going out and experiencing museums and listening to an interesting podcast or audiobook on the drive.  It means creating fun games for kids to play while they are learning.  It means learning fractions while baking a cake. As parents, we know our children and their needs better than anyone else.

 

The opportunity to homeschool my children has been the greatest gift of my life.  I would encourage anyone who is considering it to reach out to other parents that are homeschooling.  There is no one right way.  There is the way that works best for your family.  It’s not always easy, but it is always worth it.”

"She was a miracle baby that made her entrance into the world a bit early. BR is smart, beautiful, and creative but she has some health and developmental challenges ...her primary diagnosis was a speech disorder called childhood apraxia of speech; she communicated mostly with American Sign Language...It took some time and a lot of phone calls to advocate for our daughter, and we had to remind people that a Free Appropriate Public Education was her right, regardless of diagnosis. "

Based on demand, PaFEC has initiated a series of parent meetings to talk about current education options, and how advance them further for the benefit of ALL children and families in Pennsylvania.

Mission Statement

PaFEC joins, supports, and mobilizes parents, guardians, students, and families in the pursuit of Pennsylvania education choice advocacy.  We are not anti-district; we are pro-school choice.  We advocate for individual education options for our children by highlighting stories via social media and public forums, reaching out to stakeholders, and our consistent plea of the legislature that expansion of education choice programs in Pennsylvania be continued.  Gathered together as one bold voice via education, assistance, inspiration, and enlightenment, we will be victorious in our effort.
