We started as a small group of parents who live and work in our local Lockport, Homer Glen and Crest Hill library and school districts. We were pushed together by various forces and in response to a "loss of control" in our children's education. In many ways this control has been taken from us...
Our mission was simple to provide a resource for parents and taxpayers so they could become more informed, build consensus, and speak with a clear voice to change our schools and libraries to improve the life outcomes for our children.
We are growing our local base and now include members from the Lemont community. Our goal is to continue to grow to truly be a force for quality education for many more Illinois parents and taxpayers.
From rural to urban we believe all the communities in the state of Illinois deserve the best in education for our Illinois children.
Our small group of parents and taxpayers grew substantially over the year leading up to the April 2023 election. We had 19 dedicated parents and members of the community who committed to run on our platform for local School and Library Boards. We are so very proud to say five of our school board candidates won and were elected to their seats on their local school's
Board of Education.
