Get Yourself a Cause
Of course, now you might know the group as The National Parent Teacher Association, and, as The National PTA reports on its website -- it's a leader in reminding our nation of its obligations to children -- just like Mom?
The new national mom, Ms Linda Hodge tells us what the new PTA is doing:
Today PTA is addressing challenges that include parents’ time constraints, cultural differences, and school budget shortfalls. Working together, we are making it easier for busy parents to be involved with PTA. We are reaching out to diverse communities in ways that are meaningful and relevant to today’s families, and we are providing training and resources to strengthen members’ leadership and advocacy skills. PTA has the power to inspire change and make a true difference for our nation’s children.
Get it? Neither do we. But it seemed like an anniversary we better not miss.
