PTA Council's charter revoked
As I report today, the Maryland PTA has revoked the charter of the Baltimore City Council of PTAs. Technically, the reasons for the action were the same reasons the group was made inactive in June: It failed to produce meeting minutes and budgets, and it was operating without a secretary or a treasurer as required. But officials at the statewide organization were clearly peeved that president Eric White and his sidekick, first vice president LaV'ernee Curley, were continuing to operate as though nothing has changed.
In light of the decision, I wonder whether Mayor Dixon will still take White's recommendations into account as she decides whom to appoint to the school board. White was a member of Dixon's panel to interview candidates.
