Welcome to the Public School Parents Network.  A site designed and maintained by parents of public school children to serve as an information source and reference guide for all parents of school age students.  PSPN is committed to  candidly addressing the educational issues that confront school age students and their parents daily and to  provide a forum where opinions can be freely expressed from a parental perspective.

One of the primary focal points and task of this site will be to improve the conditions that our children are forced to endure regarding their physical safety at school.  The public school parents network stands firm on the basic premise that under no circumstances should any child ever feel that their physical safety and emotional well being is compromised at any time and under any circumstances.  Further more, it is our position that the assurance and ultimate responsibility for our children's safety is the responsibility of each individual school's administration, ... but without our active participation as parents the outlook is bleak.

Unfortunately educators are forced to operate under almost ridiculous circumstances.   Until parents become vocal and active in making a difference in public education, administrators are left vulnerable and ineffective.  There has to be a ground swell of parental commitment to the improvement of our schools.  If there is to be a light at the end of the tunnel, it is our responsibility to hold the torch high enough to provide a beacon of light bright enough and strong enough for our children to follow.
