Male Engagement- Getting Male Role Models Involved in Our Children’s Education

What does your PTA look like? Do men make up half of your PTA members? Leaders? Volunteers? If they don’t, do you know why? Do you know why men are important to PTA? Studies show students perform better when both parents are involved in education. Women and men think differently and bring different perspectives to PTA. PTAs are more vibrant and more appealing to all when both women and men help run them.
