Parents Engaged in Education Reform (PEER) is a national technical assistance project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs. PEER’s purpose is to increase the participation of parents of children with disabilities and their organizations in school reform efforts.
PEER Project activities are based on the premise that active participation of parents and communities is essential if the promise of school reform is to be fulfilled for all students.
Through teleconferences, workshops, publications, and institutes, the PEER Project provides opportunities for parents, parent organizations, and professionals to learn from each other about school restructuring efforts occurring in states and local communities.
In addition, to enhance opportunities for early literacy in reading for at-risk students, PEER is providing information and training to parent and community organizations in promising and best practices in literacy.
