Florida PTA Receives National Honor For Helping Stop Parent Trigger

The Florida PTA has just been given the National PTA Outstanding State Advocacy Award for its successful fight against the parent trigger last year.

Here’s what the National PTA says:

The Florida PTA is being honored for their comprehensive advocacy campaign related to Florida’s Parent Empowerment Bill. Florida PTA’s success was rooted in the concept of educating as many of their members about the bill as possible. Advocacy efforts included regular legislative updates to County Councils and local units, and grassroots activation which encouraged members to send action alerts, e-mail campaigns and participate in phone-a-thons. Additionally, Florida PTA actively engaged the media and created forward-thinking advocacy tools, including a legislative blog and legislative plan of work that is open to anyone through calling a conference call line.
