ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwired - April 16, 2014) - As part of their compatible missions to increase family involvement in education and ensure all children succeed, National PTA® and Sylvan Learning are teaming up to offer free and discounted resources for both students and parents.
With nearly 800 learning centers nationwide, Sylvan is a leading provider of personalized tutoring services for students of all ages and skill levels. Through this new alliance, PTA members across the country will have access to education experts, resources and services from Sylvan to help children thrive.
"National PTA and Sylvan Learning share a commitment to ensuring that every child reaches his or her full potential, both in school and in life," said Otha Thornton, president of National PTA. "Learning is individual for every child, and providing each child with the personal support he or she needs is critical to help him or her succeed. We are excited to team with Sylvan to provide families and students with access to personalized support to help them excel in their studies and beyond."
Among the initial benefits: All PTA members can receive 50 percent off a Sylvan Insight Assessment, which identifies a child's academic strengths and weaknesses as well as his or her attitudes about school and learning. The assessment is designed to help families and educators determine the right support a child needs to excel. In addition to the discount, for every student who takes an assessment, Sylvan will donate $10 to the student's local PTA.
"We are proud to be an official PTA Member Benefits Provider and our local centers look forward to working closely with local PTA units to help every child reach his or her full potential," says Julia Fitzgerald, chief marketing officer at Sylvan Learning. "Like National PTA, we are a resource for students and parents in helping to ignite a lifestyle of learning."

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
