PTA as a recent development in the Nigerian educational system provides enabling environment for developing quality education by serving as a link between the school and home, resource centres, raising development funds, fighting indiscipline, etc. VTE, administered under public school supervision and control, is yet to fully benefit from these PTA organisations which are battling with a myriad of problems such as poor membership, lack of interest on the part of members, corruption, and manipulation of PTA affairs. This article argues that if PTAs are properly re-positioned through application of incentives and rewards, equity participation, communication management, etc, it will go a long way in positively bringing about the long desired development of VTE in Nigeria.
