In our opinion, this is just a step too far for this Missouri PTO.  What'd they do?  Sent a note home to parents advising parents not to let their kids see the Golden Compass movie.  Several parent complaints followed and superintendent reports his office never approved the note home. The big issue:  what's the role of the parent group here?  Of course, this would be a bad choice for a Family Movie Night, and that would be a perfectly appropriate decision for the PTO leadership to make.  But advising parents what movies kids should watch outside of school? There's an area that just seems well out-of-bounds for the local parent group.
