The Danish Association of School Parents (Skole og Samfund) is the only Danish association for parents of school children.
Skole og Samfund is the parents' voice towards the Ministry of Education. It achieves political power by uniting views and presenting them to the ruling boards and committees.
Skole og Samfund is a member of the European Parents Association (EPA).
The Danish Association of School parents (Skole og Samfund) is concerned about the traffic safety of Danish schoolchildren and commits itself to the European Road Safety Charter with the following action:
"Safe school traffic - traffic policy shows the way"
The Danish Association of School parents will involve its members - the school boards - in the formulation and development of a traffic policy for each school as part of campaign "Safe school traffic - traffic policy shows the way". The campaign is carried out in collaboration with the Danish Road Safety Council and aims at improving road safety at schools and school areas, as well as for children on their way to and from school.
a) In 2010, the association will produce and publish information and training materials providing input for the development of a traffic policy for each particular school. The materials will be released and circulated after the accession of new school boards in August 2010.
b) From early 2011, when the new school boards have come into work, the association will start conduct training courses for school boards on the possibilities to develop a traffic policy at the individual school.
