PPS- Waco the Genesis
 

 

 
 

 

 

 
Kris Olson went to Waco, Texas public schools as a child.  It was quite natural when her first child entered kindergarten to show up at the school and ask to pitch in.  When Kris saw that a large number of her contemporaries were choosing to send their children to private schools or moving to the suburbs, she and some other parents decided to act, leading to the formation of Parents For Public Schools, Waco.  This action changed the Waco public schools and the parent involvement there forever.  PPS- Waco the Genesis.
