1) Will this spur other schools to consider this action? Hard to say but one person who is a member of two PTAs said her other PTA is also considering this action. Will it be like Garfield's early and firm stance on MAP and allow other schools to take a look at what is happening at their school?
2) There were several issues in play but one broad issue is this:
What is the purpose of a parent-teacher group at a school?
Do you want a combo of school-based needs with big group identity/advocacy? Is one more important than the other? Does every dollar raised count when your school has high needs (and possibly low ability to raise much money)?
