Let's unite for the sake of the children!

The NGO “Parent Union” was founded by caring parents, united for the sake of children.

The Club of Directors of educational institutions was created as a project of the NGO “Parent Union”, which is aimed to strengthen the constructive cooperation between parents and educators with the purpose of practical support to directors of educational institutions in the process of earning real autonomy for schools. After all, most directors of state educational institutions lack experience in many issues of educational management: legal, economic, financial, customer service etc. The lack of follow-up information, budget and funding issues, which directors of private and alternative schools face in their everyday routine, also makes it difficult to draw any conclusions about effective operation of their institutions.

The Club of Directors is the first project that brings together the school heads, educators and constructive parents communities.
