What We Stand For
PARENTS’ RIGHTS IN EDUCATION is committed to valuing students, empowering parents and supporting communities to secure great educations for public school children in America. A tax-deductible non-profit organization established in 2011, PRIE has inspired parents all over the nation and beyond to restore parents’ rights in education.
PRIE welcomes all students, families, and community members who care about scholastic success for K-12 public school students. Our membership is diverse and inclusive.
Though PRIE families comes from all different backgrounds and from across the political spectrum, we are all united by our love of learning and the possibilities for success in life available to all students through scholarship.
Parents’ Have Legal Rights
Parents have always had legal rights, upheld by five Supreme Court decisions clearly stating parents have the right to direct the education of their children. The only thing new about parental rights today, is a seemingly coordinated effort playing out in headlines, to usurp and undermine the role of family within our communities.
PRIE strives for the return of community values properly represented and reflected in school policies, without the current trend of coercion and reprisal as concerns are voiced. Public school boards were created to reflect the values of their community, and to defend and represent the people, providing a bridge between policy makers and taxpaying stakeholders. PRIE believes families are the most important stakeholders. Parents’ voices matter!

Everyone’s Opinion Matters
Parents Rights in Education stands with everyone’s right to tolerance and respect. Public schools are for everyone. Political bias cannot be tolerated. One sided political ideologies are often promoted and presented as truth, without discussion of other viewpoints. Reports of discrimination are shocking. Students have been disciplined and even expelled for representing opposing views.
