This is such a cool page! Send a letter to your senators and representatives so easily! They have 'speaking points' to just click on and add to the letter. You can add more thoughts too.
Do you want to let D.C. know how you feel about the lack of money for educating our children? Were teachers cut from your schools for next year? Was your school year shortened next year (and teacher's salaries frozen and cut)? Is the toilet paper your children using in schools only 1/4 ply? Has your district cut your sports, your buses, your classroom aides, your library book purchases?
Please speak up! It's like The Lorax...he had to speak for the trees! Well, we are the Loraxes of Learning...and we have to speak for the children and their education! Our district is at only 165 student days now! I came from California...where they required 180. Yet as teachers, we have to still teach the same amount of material! The kids still have to reach the same learning benchmarks as in all the other states!
It's not right and the state and federal governments need to stop making education an acceptable budget cut. They want to increase funds to social programs...well they may need to if they are not giving us the money to educate our children! These kids will not learn what they need to be successful graduates if we are forcing them into larger classes and taking away their days of learning!!!
Please send a letter to your congress people today!!
