The Parental Alliance for Choice in Education (PACE) was established to inform parents of their legal rights in education matters throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The Northern Ireland branch has a focus on the education reform agenda of the Department of Education (Northern Ireland) which is largely at odds with the expressed wishes of the majority of parents and teachers as expressed through the DENI Household Survey. The Household Survey received 200,551 responses – the largest ever recorded in an education survey in the UK.
