Join PTA For Your Child

National PTA Position Statements are official documents outlining the opinion, will, or intent of the association to address national problems, situations, or concerns that affect children and youth and require national action to seek resolution on the issue. National PTA has adopted hundreds of position statements on a wide variety of national education, health, and safety issues since its first convention in 1897.

The following is a list of a few of National PTA's position statements. For questions about these position statements or help finding others, contact National PTA's Department of Government Affairs at govtaffairs@pta.org.
