Who We Are

The Rochester Coalition for Public Education's main purposes are to provide educators, parents, students and the Rochester Community, clear, research-based information regarding progressive education reform and to actively influence local, state and federal education policy-makers to implement those reforms which will help students gain the skills necessary to become responsible, active, joyful citizens.
