Satire Alert On Parent Engagement

Last Stand For Children First is a satirical blog poking fun at many of the “school reform” groups out there. There latest post is titled Getting Parent Voices Heard in Education Debate.

One of their recommendations to parents rings just so true, and, unfortunately, not just school reform groups have this perspective:

Attend regular meetings where you can be told what your interests and opinions should be.

And, in an effort that should be satire but is actually true, one of those school reform groups — Democrats For Education Reform — have just formed a new organization in New York. It’s name is Parents Taking Action.

Yes.

It’s publicizing its acronym as “PTA.”
