Very proud of my good friend Joni for her continued support and dedication to Charlotte’s public schools.

At least one Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board member may want to let PTAs raise money for teacher salaries, but national and state PTA rules forbid that, the head of the Mecklenburg PTA Council says.

“Anyone who has ever been involved with PTAs’ financial operations should be aware of that prohibition,” Council President Joni Trobich said in an e-mail after reading about board member Tim Morgan’s proposal.

Parents started talking about raising money to save teacher jobs last summer, when Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools was laying off hundreds. Trobich and Superintendent Peter Gorman shot the idea down then, saying it raises a host of ethical and practical questions.
