PTA Defections

According to the Associated Press the local PTA in Brecksville, Ohio defected from the national PTA.

In 1962, the national PTA had 12 million members. Now, despite expanding school enrollment, it has 6.5 million.

In Ohio, the PTA peaked in 1961 with 750,000 members. Its Ohio membership has dropped to 140,000.

Apparently, the Brecksville PTA did not share the national group's view against vouchers and charter schools.
