PTAs Benefit Everyone
PTA addresses issues that are important to parents and public school administrators. We fight for full funding, quality teachers, and capabilities for schools to thrive. If your school or district does not have a PTA, now is the time. Membership is open to everyone. Your PTA is autonomous but supported by a national structure. It sets its own dues.
PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering
families and communities to advocate for all children.
The National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) comprises millions of families,
students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted
to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in
schools. PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit association that prides itself on being a
powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a
strong advocate for public education. Membership in PTA is open to anyone who wants
to be involved and make a difference for the education, health, and welfare of children
