Help us honor Leonie Haimson!

pva14_colorJoin Parents Across America at our first annual Parent Voice Award Dinner honoring PAA co-founder Leonie Haimson, leader of New York City-based Class Size Matters.

This year, Leonie nearly single-handedly organized parents around the U.S. to oppose the impending commercialization of student information by the inBloom company, which ultimately went out of business after every state on its original clientele list pulled out of the program. Leonie is also the founder of NYC-based Class Size Matters, a group dedicated to promoting smaller class size – a proven, effective school reform strategy. Leonie started the New York Public School Parents’ Blog and has been a leader in challenging school privatization, misuse and over use of standardized tests, and, most recently, the threat to student data privacy.

A special guest speaker and entertainment will make this evening even more memorable.

The 2014 PAA Parent Voice Award Dinner is being hosted by the National Education Association at their headquarters in Washington, DC.

You may purchase tickets here. Tickets will include a buffet dinner and free non-alcoholic drinks. There will be a cash bar from 6:30 to 7 pm.

Proceeds from the dinner are fully tax deductible and will support PAA’s programs and the work of our chapters around the U.S.

The registration form also includes an option for those unable to attend who would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to PAA in honor of Leonie. Thank you!
