PASR's focus is crystal clear—promoting and protecting the Parent Aware Ratings.
The Parent Aware Ratings are like a Consumer Reports or J.D. Powers rating system for helping parents find the child care providers using kindergarten readiness best practices.
PASR doesn't actually conduct the ratings. That is done by the State of Minnesota. But PASR does serve two critically important functions:
These are functions that the government sector isn't willing and/or able to do, and PASR believes the Minnesota's early education reform model will fail if these functions go unfulfilled.
So, to fill that void, Minnesota's private sector has stepped up in a big way, in the form of PASR.
This brief video is intended for audiences interested in learning why early learning reforms are needed, but not about policy reform specifics.
