Welcome! We're glad you're here.
PEAC works to promote education that includes all children by providing individual technical assistance, advocacy, and supports to families; assisting institutions of higher education better prepare teachers to effectively teach all children; and influencing and supporting schools, policymakers, and the community to effectively implement inclusive practices and policies. We are a partnership of parents, educators, related professionals and others who believe that children of all backgrounds and abilities should be successfully educated together in their neighborhood schools within the general education curriculum.
Could this be you?
Pennsylvania’s Education for All Coalition(PEAC) is a partnership of parents, educators, related professionals and others working together to support the education of ALL children, together in their neighborhood schools, including children of different backgrounds and abilities.
Pennsylvania’s Education for All Coalition helps self advocates understand their educational rights, helps parents and schools collaborate with each other, and provides individual support and resources. We provide these services through a group of informed and supported self advocates known as the Self Advocate Network or SAN. PEAC and the SAN are supported in part by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.
Self Advocates are:
Individuals who receive or may have received special education services.
committed to inclusive education for ALL children.
emerging leaders in their local communities.
trained for free by PEAC.
paid for their service.
