Gwinnett Schools to state PTA: No confidence in you. No money from us.

A power struggle has created strife in the Georgia PTA and led to allegations against the leaders, causing Gwinnett County Public Schools to now ask its school units to stop sending in state dues until it gets answers on what is happening.

In response to allegations against the Georgia PTA leadership, the superintendent of Gwinnett County Public Schools is advising local PTAs to stop sending money to the state organization.

In a letter dated Tuesday, Gwinnett Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks wrote, “We have no confidence in the current board and officers of Georgia PTA.” Wilbanks notes PTA state leaders overseeing the Gwinnett area “are being investigated for possible misuse of PTA funds.”

As a result, Wilbanks has asked local units to withhold any funds that usually go to the state PTA “until we feel the grave matters before us have been satisfactorily addressed.”

Thus far, the controlling faction of the Georgia PTA that staged a coup in January and wrested control, expelling the president and anyone who supported her, has ignored the escalating outrage.
