Just interested in anyone's experience both positive and negative with P&Cs. There are a couple of things I don't like about ds' school and just wonder if the p&c is an effective body for getting change at the school or do they tend to be talkfests. What makes a good p&c? I understand that it probably does differ between schools but I guess I am interested in general impressions.

I have zero experience and just wonder if it is worth getting involved or if I will buying myself a headache and make myself unpopular at the school which I might have done already #-o
