NCPTA Advocacy Priorities

The bylaws of the National PTA and the North Carolina PTA both provide that a core purpose of PTA is “to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.” 

The 2021 – 2022 Legislative Advocacy Priorities will guide North Carolina PTA’s work during the 2021-2022 year and thereafter until modified by the NCPTA Legislative Advocacy Chair.

The NCPTA Legislative Chair will modify and add advocacy priorities as they arise and present themselves. This document includes but is not limited to all of the programs, initiatives, legislation, and policies that the North Carolina PTA will encourage, support, and advocate for on behalf of children in North Carolina.

NCPTA will advocate, encourage, and support initiatives that positively impact children at all government levels– local, state, and federal. NCPTA will continue to advocate for substantial funding, highly qualified, licensed, and certified teachers and administrators in all schools. We believe that every child should have access to a world-class education, allowing them to reach their full potential by facilitating academic and cultural excellence using scholarly research and proven methods led by educators.

In keeping with the North Carolina PTA’s mission and support of our existing and long-standing policies, the North Carolina 2021 – 2022 State Legislative Advocacy Priorities are as follows:
