NY Stay in School

A message from the New York State Parent Teacher Association:

One of the PTA's founding principles is its dedication to engaging parents in the education of their children. The PTA believes that parent and family involvement in the schools is a key component in the success of youth of all ages.

Studies have shown that the more families are involved, the better the students, the school, and the school district perform. The National PTA's web site has many documents related to Parent and Family Involvement in schools.
