Yeah, I think so.  I certainly feel a bit less unique these days as a dad in the PTO and PTA world. And this story from the Chicago Trib adds some more color to the dad involvement issue.

We've covered this in several ways over the years. I wrote a column of my thoughts about what works for bringing in dads.  And our editorial folks covered it with a feature a year or so ago.  There really are some basics that can make a big difference.

Are you seeing any progress in the dad area?  In a silver lining I'd rather not face, I imagine the current economic climate may result in more dads with time to get involved with school. This is likely a good time to add some effort around attracting and welcoming dads.
