TQE:Diverse but United, Thoughtful &Committed

TQE is parents and grandparents, teachers and taxpayers, families of all sizes, races, nationalities, and political views. Our common goal is to provide the best education possible for our children by spending responsibly for our schools.

Many Backgrounds & Religious Creeds
We come from all walks of life--business, sales, homemaking,  medicine, law, retirement. We practice many religious faiths. Many of our children attend Bedford Schools; many of our children have graduated from them.

Community-Based & Family-Focused
We are active in our community  and in our schools. Many of us have moved here to raise our families and enjoy the good schools and quality of life that Bedford offers; others have grown up here.

Community-Funded & Non-Partisan
TQE receives 100% of its funding from donations by Bedford citizens. We are completely non-partisan. Despite our diversity, we are united in our commitment to provide quality education to the children of our community.
