Vision & Mission


Children of all cultures will receive an equitable and high quality public education.


PPS of Houston promotes and strengthens public schools by organizing, training, and engaging parents in the educational process.

Organizing Parents and their supporters to work for equitable distribution of resources to support public education and access to opportunities for all students. PPS parents are leading advocates in shaping education policy at the local, state and national levels.

Training Parents by helping them learn to cut through the intimidating jargon that often keeps them from becoming involved in their child’s education. Parents learn to understand the data published regarding their children’s schools and gain the confidence to challenge a school administration that may be failing or attend a school board meeting. In short, PPS provides parents – often voiceless – with the tools and confidence they need to ensure that the local schools are excellent.

Engage Parents by reminding them of the research that makes clear the correlation of parent participation and student achievement. Parents also learn to become engaged in local, state and national issues impacting education.
