National PTA wants to know your views on NCLB

Fill out the questionnaire here.

Not much has been said about this but I think national PTA should be concerned about NCLB. PTA, by the way, is the largest lobbying group in the nation. They run neutral on most political issues and have stayed out of the NCLB issue for the most part. Looks like they want to know what their constituency thinks about NCLB.

How does NCLB affect PTA? PTA is the parent group for public schools. Private schools have PTOs, which are not affiliated with the PTA organization. As we get more and more private schools in the system, PTA membership will drop.

It would be a huge thing for national PTA to take a stance against the federal law.
