Our California State PTA does a lot of advocacy work on behalf of schools, children, and families.  As part of that work, they have taken positions on several statewide ballot measures, urging "yes" votes on Propositions 51, 55, 56, 58, and 63. 

For more information on these Propositions and the reasons the State PTA supports them, click here.
