Making Decisions in the Educational Arena

Think About It

The faculty and staff of Morton Middle School are divided over whether or not it’s a good idea to include two student representatives on the PTA (or PTSA) board. Their opinions are sought by Assistant Principal Hester Wochik on behalf of the school’s principal. It’s not so much that faculty members are undecided about whether or not involving students is a good idea. Rather, they cannot figure out which students to involve, and they really don’t know how to go about determining an answer to this dilemma.
