What should PTA advocate for?

Take five for kids

WSPTA 2012 Issues Survey now live
What should be on WSPTA’s 2013 platform? What will help kids reach their potential? Take the WSPTA 2012 Issues Survey  and let us know.

Are we doing enough for special education students? What can we do about racial and income equity when it comes to the opportunity gaps? Should we prioritize bonuses for National Board certified teachers? What should we do about funding shortfalls? (Raise revenue? Fund education first in the budgeting process?)

PTA volunteers work in classrooms and communities across Washington, but we also advocate in Olympia and within our school districts for policies and funding to support children’s well-being and education. Every June, members propose ideas they think the association should prioritize; and every October delegates from the PTAs gather to decide which ones to put on WSPTA’s platform.

But before they can vote, they need your feedback. Your opinion matters: It will help shape PTA advocacy for the next two years. But hurry – the survey closes Sept. 30.

Resources for you:

Your opinion matters! Please weigh in.
