Why PTA?

The Power of PTA: PTA Makes a Difference

Over the past 125 years, PTA has helped solve some of the biggest issues facing America’s children. Many of the structures all children benefit from today—child labor laws, universal kindergarten, the National School Lunch Program and the juvenile justice system—were accomplished as a result of PTA members’ advocacy.



In honor of PTA’s 125th Anniversary, we are asking cities, counties, and school boards throughout California to recognize PTA. You can make that happen! Not only is this a great opportunity to become a little more civically engaged, it’s is fun and exciting for the kids and volunteers who make up your PTA.
