OUR HISTORY

Public Education Partners was founded in 1985 as a local education fund that works to build connectivity between the private sector and our public schools. Over the last 35 years we have provided both on-the-ground supports and services like teacher grants, while also working at a systems-level through research and recommendations for policy and programmatic innovations. By collaborating with the community, educators and local organizations, PEP creates initiatives that provide critical resources for children and teachers to strengthen our public education system.
