Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE)
PIQE is dedicated to achieving economic and social equality for all through education.
To provide families with the knowledge and skills to partner with schools and communities to ensure their children achieve their full potential.
PIQE is a national organization with evidence-based programs that engage, empower and transform parents to actively engage in their children’s education and strengthen parent-school collaboration. PIQE provides empowering information, skills development and support systems for low-income families, communities of color, English Learner and immigrant families benefiting approximately 2.1 million children throughout its history. A longitudinal study shows that these children graduate high school and attend college at higher rates than their peers due to PIQE’s success in empowering parents to be successful advocates for their children’s education.
PIQE continues to grow with a statewide presence in 128 California school districts and nearly 400 schools serving more than 18,000 families annually. PIQE’s best practice model is being implemented in 13 states nationwide. For these families, PIQE has been and continues to be, the only way to access information about key policies that directly impact their children’s access to equitable educational opportunities. - PIQE.org
