Not going out without a fight
The Maryland PTA revoked the charter of the Baltimore City Council of PTAs last month, meaning the organization is ineligible to operate for at least the next two years. But it's not going out without a fight.
On Tuesday, the defunct council will sponsor, along with Sen. Joan Carter Conway, Del. Jill Carter and Del. Cheryl D. Glenn, a "PTA town hall meeting" to talk about what happened. An e-mail promoting the event to local PTA chapters says the city's branch of the NAACP is also scheduled to participate, and the Baltimore City Council will be sending representatives.
The event will be held at Morgan State University's Murphy Fine Arts building from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. -- coincidentally (or not) right in the middle of a previously scheduled city school board meeting. I'm sorry I can't be in two places at once.
