Stereotypes: Past and Present

“I think there might be some truth to the stereotype, but I think that its unfortunate that there is a stereotype. I think it might be more appropriate for people to just be thankful that there are parents who want to be involved and who make the PTSO happen.” - Dawn Fluher

“I have found that it completely wastes my time and I would be better off going directly to my kid’s teachers and finding out how I can help in that way.  Plus, I have four kids, so spending an additional 20 minutes a day with them on their homework would be more directly beneficial to them.” -Jennifer Dale
