Nevada PTA Sets Example on Male Engagement is a useful post over at Education Week. Here’s how it begins:

After a concerted effort by the Nevada PTA to engage men in the education of their children, grade point averages rose and disciplinary cases decreased by more than 50 percent, according to the Nevada PTA.
These and other outcomes are the reasons Nevada PTA received the National PTA MP3-Male Participation Award—a national recognition that honors a state PTA for significant strides in the recruitment and engagement of men in education.
