Back to School, PTA PTSA reminder

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.

Instead of addressing issues that help poor kids trapped in failing schools, the PTA sentences them to failing schools by opposing vouchers and supporting barriers to effective charter schools. The Ohio PTA is party to a lawsuit challenging charter schools in Ohio, which have been lifeboats to many in troubled districts.

This article no longer exists at the original source, but I feel that is should be bumped to the top again, as non-homeschooling parents are setting aside money for back to school expenses.

Here in Florida, the PTA worked in partnership ($$$) with Project yes, a homosexual advocacy group for students.

If parents really love their kids they will NOT be in public schools. There is NO legitimate excuse for a child to be in a public school. Parents that love their kids will practically move mountains for money, to keep them safe and educate them.

The PTA marches in lockstep


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!
