New Website: PTA Spanish Language Website

Posted by on August 23, 2002


“Los buenos padres no nacen. Se hacen.” With this slogan, meaning, “Good parents are not born. They are developed,” National PTA announced the launch of its Hispanic Outreach Initiative at its 2002 convention. This outreach program seeks to remove some of the language and cultural barriers that might keep Hispanic families from actively participating in their child’s education. Using a variety and language- and culture-sensitive materials, the Hispanic Outreach Initiative will reach out to Spanish-speaking parents who wish to become more involved in their child’s education. The initiative will offer a new mentoring program to keep parents involved in their child’s school, as well as bilingual resources for Spanish-speaking families. National PTA already offers a variety of Spanish-language resources in the Parent Involvement section of its website including tips on battling discrimination, talking to teens about health and sex, using the Internet, and being an effective advocate for your child’s education.
