Share Your Story To Help Save Educators’ Jobs
Tell us how budget cuts are affecting YOUR STUDENTS
Congress is considering a bill that would provide $23 billion to save hundreds of thousands of educators’ jobs. While some members of Congress hesitate to support it because of
the budget deficit, failure to act now and save those jobs would actually worsen the economic situation over the long run.
To win their support, we need your help. We need stories that breathe life into the statistics and illustrate the immediate impact of educators’ lost jobs on America’s children:
- Tell us about summer programs that won’t be offered about kids who had planned to go to summer school and what they will be doing instead.
- Tell us about larger classes come fall about classes too big for effective teaching and learning, as well as classes and programs that are being eliminated entirely.
- Tell us about three of your own students about how cuts in school personnel, programs and services are affecting them and their families.
