About Us

Philadelphia Parents Coalition (PPC) was created out of a need for educational equity for Black, Latinx and low-income families while meeting the high demand among those families for access to and choice of quality schools in the Philadelphia area, as evident by the long waitlist numbers for seats in charter, magnet, and out-of-catchment District schools.

Strengthen and Amplify the Parent Voice and presence in the fight for Quality Choice and Access in the city of Philadelphia.
