Of course you do. Now, the California State PTA and the Pearson Foundation are giving you new ways to share good ideas, through the Parents Know the Answer new media campaign.
The PTA has a history of making a difference in communities across California. In recent years, the opportunities to communicate messages about the PTA and education have grown exponentially; today email, Facebook, and YouTube can be as effective as television in reaching the public – even more effective, in some ways.
Through the Parents Know the Answer new media campaign, the California State PTA and the Pearson Foundation are capturing parents’ voices and turning them into short public service announcements (PSAs) that you can use for free to raise awareness about the mission and diversity of the PTA in your community.
The key to the Parents Know the Answer media campaign is you. Take advantage of email and Facebook, as well as school websites and local television. These 15 – and 30–second announcements are designed to be easy to distribute – but California’s parents will see them only if you get the word out. Follow the instructions on this site to create your own Parents Know the Answer media campaign in your local community!
