Prairie Public Education Services believes in helping all kids succeed in school and in life. We employ six full-time professionals – several who are former teachers – to provide researched, high-quality digital resources and learning materials to educators, parents, and children at no or minimal cost. Many of these materials are standards-aligned; most of them are developed by PBS, the respected grandparent of educational television.
