A reader going under “KickoffTD” argues that parents should focus their efforts on the PTA and supporting their child at home.
“An effective way to change your school is to be an active member of PTA. It is a place to let the administration know you are a concerned parent. The reason north end schools appear to benefit from the district more than south end schools, is those parents are active participates with the district to create change. You set up a blog to complain. Some parents need to learn how to participate and avocat for positive change. Everyone working together is a better way to get the finest education for your child. As a teacher of second language students I use the resources of the district as well as spent a significant amount of my own money to instruct my students. I gladly do this as a tax payer from New Rochelle and a parent of 2 New Rochelle HS graduates. My daughters both graduated from college and are successful young adults. I’m a south end parent and advocated for my children by participating in PTA, school events and hiring tutors so my children were able to successfully compete with their peers. Success in school starts at home.”
