Parent page

Parents and educators are natural allies in the effort to provide the best education to our children. The UFT works closely with thousands of parents across the city to help ensure that their children and all New York City students receive a great education. The union has full-time parent liaisons who engage directly with parents in every borough. We also work with parents through our many community partners. On this website, parents will find tools and information on everything from navigating the school system to understanding the college application process. Be sure to check out our Dial-A-Teacher program, which offers free homework help, and our Scholarship Fund, which can help to offset the cost of higher education.

Raise the Bar If your child is not receiving the services specified in her or his IEP, file a special ed complaint form. To learn about how to deal with changes in special education, read our Fact Sheet on Special Education Reform. For more information, visit our Special Education and the IEP page just for parents.
