It’s a guy thing! Dads, stepdads, grandfathers and male caregivers all play a big role in our kids’ future success.
MEN PLAY A STRONG ROLE IN KIDS’ SUCCESS
When men actively participate in children’s education, it leads to better grades and higher attendance. Plus men’s participation contributes to creating healthy school climates and – in the long run – increased likelihoods of college attendance.
Men have been a part of the PTA from our beginning a century ago, and men must continue to be involved in the next century and beyond if our kids – and our future – will truly be successful.
