Congressman GT Gets National PTA Award

G T Thompson Receives National
PTA Congressional Voice for Children Award

Recognition of Outstanding Leadership Related to Child and Education Advocacy

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson recently received the National PTA Congressional Voice for Children Award. Thompson was recognized for the award, along with U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), on Thursday, March 8, 2012, during National PTA’s Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. National PTA’s Congressional Voice for Children Award is given to two Members of Congress each year in recognition of outstanding leadership related to child and education advocacy.

"Representative Thompson has been a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee since being sworn into office in 2009. Earlier this year, Representative Thompson played a critical role in saving the Parent Information and Resource Centers from elimination when he supported the Platts Amendment during the Education and Workforce Committee’s markup of the Setting New Priorities in Education Spending Act,” National PTA stated, in a release issued earlier today. “In addition, Representative Thompson has advocated for Title I formula fairness and college and career-ready initiatives.”

"We see that parents are very engaged early on in their child's education, but when they get to high school, that involvement tends to fade. At that time, we need to focus on getting parents out of the bleachers and reengaged in students academic lives," said Representative Thompson. "I commend the National PTA for working to ensure that parental involvement extends throughout the educational development of each child. I am quite honored to receive this award and look forward continuing our work on behalf of America’s young learners."

National PTA’s Legislative Conference consists of a series of workshops, skill building training sessions, panel discussions and guest speakers, which this year included U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
