Extractions: It was a mid-Summer showdown at the House Education and the Workforce Committee. Republicans were pushing a bill to provide scholarships to low-income students in the District of Columbia, and committee Democrats knew exactly who to turn to for testimony against parental choice in education: an organization ostensibly for parents, the National PTA. It was the second time this year that a PTA representative had testified against parental choice before the committee. Most Americans know the PTA as a world of bake sales, fun fairs, and teacher-appreciation lunches, and at the local level it is. The national organization, however, has a different agenda. Whether the issue is opposing educational choice or calling for increased federal funding for public-school programs, politicians on the left know they have a friend in the National PTA. But its one-sided politics are out of touch with its members, and political analysts say the National PTA soon may have to decide whether its priority is representing parents or its liberal political agenda.

Extractions: Background These initial measures are to be reviewed annually. USAFE will revise the objectives as necessary, recognizing the transience of the USAFE population as a potential obstacle to continued progress. An installation may reach high levels of community involvement in dependent education and make great progress, only to have this investment dissipate with personnel rotations. Therefore, the participation of new families must be garnered year after year. Expectations for dependent education will also change. Only open communication will surface changes in a timely fashion. Channels throughout the military and school systems must During the evaluations of the plan, the Command will be challenged to recommit time, energy, and resources toward improving dependent education. As the Tiger Team came to acknowledge, no school system can succeed unless leaders and parents the entire community make education of children a priority. The 1998 Tiger Team on Dependent Education hopes the USAFE community continues to rise to that challenge

Extractions: by Maureen Boland Here are some good sources of information: Your state department of education. Many states rank their school districts, and offer other vital statistics to the public. You can get the phone number by calling directory assistance for your state capital. Parent Teacher Associations. PTAs and PTOs (Parent Teacher Organizations) can be a great resource for inside information, such as state rankings. Contact your local school and ask to be put in touch with the PTA president or the school's PTA teacher liaison. If your school can't provide PTA contacts, call your state's PTA office or the National PTA's membership department at (800) 307-4782, or visit their Web site at www.pta.org Real estate agents. Many local realtors have the latest scoop on schools in the area and provide it to interested parents. For them, it's smart business to share their information, whether or not you use their services. Local newspapers.
