Extractions: RECEIVE EMAIL UPDATES: SEARCH PTO TODAY: By Tim Sullivan It was perhaps the loudest reaction on the first day of the 2000 national PTA convention in Chicago. Illinois Superintendent of Schools Dr. Glenn McGee remembered a day earlier in his career when he made the mistake of referring to parent groups as PTOs. Almost on cue, the crowd of 1,500 or so PTAers roared their disapproval. Loud boos echoed through the cavernous meeting hall. He may as well have said that he hated the Cubs, the White Sox, the Bulls, and the Bears. Why the strong emotions? Are PTOs hurting kids or doing something wrong? While no PTA defenders go that far, there is a subtle but undeniable implication that those groups that arent part of the PTA are in some way choosing to abandon the cause of children. For some groups, the PTO vs. PTA debate is simply a matter of dollars and cents (either we dont want to send any money out of our school or are we getting enough service for the money we send out of our school?). For others, though, the debate takes on a significantly increased importance. If we dont speak for all children, then who will? the PTAs most loyal defenders often ask. Independence vs. Affiliation

The annual wrapping-paper sale. Across Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, parent groups continue to play important roles helping to build community at their schools. Today, though, these groups are far more likely to be called PTO or HSA or PCC...than they are to be called PTA. In total, fewer than 11 percent of southern New England K-8 parent groups remain affiliated with the formal PTA. While Connecticut's PTA is the strongest in the region (19 percent of the state's K-8 schools belong), the region's largest state, Massachusetts, can claim only 5 percent membership. "Back in the 60's we had over 100,000 members," recalls Massachusetts PTA Treasurer and Past President Barbara Bailey, herself a member for some 20 years. "There's just over 20,000 members now in 126 local units." "Personally, I've never heard of what the PTA does" says Sue Greenleaf, an active PTO volunteer at two schools in Tyngsboro, MA, expressing perhaps the most frustrating reality for PTA leaders.

If these organizations pool their resources with yours to focus on technology for a defined period of time, you can all make major strides. "There is only one solid, consistent, and unshakable source of funding...: the gifts and bequests made by millions of individuals and families each year...In 1991, they gave more than $103 billion to the more than half-million groups, agencies, and institutions that make up the non-profit world. While a foundation or corporate funder will come and go, a generous individual, if properly recognized and cultivated by your organization, will make a commitment that can last a lifetime and beyond."

Extractions: Volume 3, Issue 12 December 1999 Focusing on Education Reforms at Your School, in Your State Legislature, and in Congress California on Front Lines Concerning Charter School Bargaining New legislation approved in October by Governor Gray Davis threatens the way charter schools have been conducting business in California. After their legislative proposal to require collective bargaining in charter schools failed, California teacher unions successfully lobbied for Assembly Bill 631, a compromise almost as egregious. A.B. 631 affects new and existing charter schools. Before new applications to operate as a charter school will be approved, the charter board must decide whether 1) to be an independent public employer, or 2) to be subject to the district's collective bargaining negotiations with the incumbent employee unions. With well over 250,000 members, the teacher union likely to capture the most additional members will be the California Teachers Association the NEA affiliate.
Extractions: New England Comprehensive Assistance Center Parent Involvement In today's world, it is not always easy for parents, especially single parents, to find time and energy to get involved in their children's education. However, when parents become involved, both children and parents are benefit. Researchers report that parent participation enhances children's self-esteem, improves their academic achievement, improves parent-child relationships, and helps parents develop positive attitudes towards school. Two Types of Involvement One kind of parental involvement is school-based. It centers around school activities such as attending parent-teacher conferences and school functions, volunteering at the school, receiving and responding to written communications from the teacher, and encouraging parents to join Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) or Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs). Many schools try to make it easier for working parents to participate in school-based activities by scheduling conferences and school events at different times of the day. A second type of involvement focuses on parent-child interaction at home. Home-based activities allow parents flexibility in scheduling, provide opportunities for parents and children to spend time together, and offer a relaxed setting. The most beneficial home activities are deceptively simple. Many parents do not realize that when they involve children in day-to-day activities such as a trip to the gas station or grocery store, they can provide opportunities for learning. For example, although watching TV is viewed as noneducational, joint TV viewing can become educational if parents and children discuss what they saw.
