Who We Are
PEER is a national network of organizers, advocates, lawyers and community leaders focused on reinvestment in public education. Our partners work on the ground to advance innovative solutions for equity and education rights.
What’s At Stake
Decades of underfunding public education are depriving students of access to educational opportunities.
For years, leaders have left schools from rural areas to major cities without the resources they need, disproportionately impacting the education of students of color.
less per student in state and local revenues for districts with more BIPOC students than districts with fewer
more spent on majority white schools than majority BIPOC
increase in per student spending leads to higher wages & reduced poverty later in life
What We Believe
Strong public schools are essential to strong communities.
It’s time for lawmakers to stop playing politics with childrens’ futures and fully fund public schools based on students’ needs. Only then can we guarantee every student has an opportunity to thrive.
What We Do
PEER is bringing together advocates, lawyers, organizers and community leaders to build a national movement around investment in public education.
