PSEA created Partners for Public Education to connect Pennsylvanians with their public schools, give them up-to-date information on policies that impact their students, and offer the latest research and information on public education.

Taylor convinced the South Fayette school board, superintendent, and parent groups to get involved with Partners for Public Education.  

“It’s important to have Partners join,” Taylor said. “It isn’t until we speak in one, united voice that others are going to hear just how important public education is.”

Chapters of Partners for Public Education are forming across the state.
