One of my BU journalism students is writing about equity among PTOs in the elementary schools. This was a much-discussed issue at School Committee meetings last year, I believe, but she can’t find any parents or PTO presidents who are willing to talk to her about the issue. She just wants different perspectives on how fundraising and spending works at different schools. Her emails to several PTO and PTO Council officers have gone unanswered.
Please help out. If we are going to be successful in the efforts to increase Newton coverage with college students, we need people to step up and talk to these young journalists.
Please email [email protected] if you are involved in an elementary school PTO. She needs to complete a draft of the story by Monday.
