The 60 percent of parents who believe teacher pay increases should be tied to student performance also get no recognition. The PTA marches in lockstep with the school employee unions, particularly the National Education Association, which opposes performance incentives. Many parents are shocked to discover that the PTA president is an NEA member and the PTA received rent-reduced office space from the NEA for 15 years.

Here in Florida, the PTA worked in partnership ($$$) with Project yes, a homosexual advocacy group for students.
The PTA in my daughters' school sent 3 pound packets home with them full of their moneymaking schemes.
I sent the packets back unopened, along with a letter stating that I was *fully* aware of the fact that the national PTA used locally generated funds to promote the homosexual lifestyle and Democratic agenda.
I also told them they were NOT to send anymore of this garbage home with my children, or ever use my children to raise funds for them.
I haven't heard a peep from them since!
God Bless you!
You are great!
