THE EDITOR, Sir:

The National PTA commends the minister of education on his recent announcement indicating the ministry's intention to work with the National Parent-Teacher Association of Jamaica (NPTAJ) in establishing functional PTAs in all schools. This is welcome news in this the 10th anniversary of the NPTAJ.

For too long have PTAs been just another source of income for many schools, defeating the intent and objectives of many PTAs, and in some cases frustrating their very existence and role.

We look forward to the early engagement allowing for a September 2016 roll-out.

Everton Hannan

President, NPTAJ
