All of us are just finding out what the impact of the budget crisis will mean to our public school. I'd love to hear how different schools (and their PTA/PTOs) are responding. Can you create a new conversation topic so parents can share what scenarios their principal is presenting and how their school community (parents and staff) are preparing to respond? For instance, who's cutting teachers (and how many), who's investing all PTA funds to keep teachers and maintain smaller class sizes, who's doing a second fundraising ask to all families, any new/creative ideas, etc.
