PTA Opens Magazine to Public with Online Edition

| No comments

Our Children magazine, the National PTA's publication, is now available online.

For more than 100 years, the magazine has been provided exclusively to PTA leaders, according to a release from the organization.

Beginning with the first issue of Our Children for the 2012-13 school year, any interested parent, teacher, or member of the community can access a digital version
of the publication.

Publishing online allows the PTA to enhance the magazine with extra content, audio and video. One example is an excerpt from a keynote speech by Wes Moore, author of "The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates," who spoke at the PTA's National Convention earlier this year.

The first online issue includes an article entitled, "Dating Violence is Not Getting Attention in Most Schools."

The PTA has also posted articles from archives of the magazine.

Upcoming issues of Our Children will focus on fundraising, technology in education, education reform and teacher appreciation.
