Join us on Thursday to call Congress and stand up for Kids Not Cuts!

Tags: , ,

Thanks to your hard work, we’ve made progress in the fight against the “fiscal cliff” cuts to education, but we’re not in the clear yet.

Call 1-866-293-7278 on Thursday, February 7 to reach your members of congress and urge them to support Kids Not Cuts!

At a minimum, education could still be hit with a cut of more than $3 billion this year. That’s a scary prospect for educators like Marian from California, who shared her Kids Not Cuts story with us through our Education Votes website:

We have class sizes over 40, no libraries, no computer labs, one nurse for 5,000 students and no music or art in our district. That is not what is needed to educate our students. Restoring funding is crucial and must happen, now!

You can help stand up for students like Marian’s and those in your own community by joining in our national call congress day. On Thursday, February 7, call 1-866-293-7278 to be connected to your members of congress and urge them to support Kids Not Cuts. Remember to tell your elected official’s staff that you are an educator and voter in his or her state, and that the best way to reduce the deficit is to create jobs and close tax loopholes for the rich – not cut public education.

Call 1-866-293-7278 on Thursday to stand up for your students and public education!

Don’t worry if you’ve never called your members of congress before. When you call our hotline, you’ll hear a brief message reminding you of the best practices for contacting your elected officials and a refresher on the issues at hand to help you form your message.

    HI I’M THE COMPUTER LAB ATTENDANT, THE LAB IS A NECESSARY SOURCE OF LEARNING ALONG WITH THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT, ART, AND OF COURSE WE DEFINITE NEED A NURSE AT A SCHOOL MORE THAN ONE OR TWO DAYS A WEEK. I HELP OUT IN THE OFFICE AND THE DAYS THE NURSE IS OUT IT CAN BE HECTIC, SO A FULL TIME NURSE WOULD BE FANTASTIC , II’VE BEEN IN THE DISTRICT FOR EIGHTEEN YEARS AND I DO NOT RECALL NEVER A FULL TIME NURSE AT MY SCHOOL. PLEASE RECONSIDER THE CHANGES, THE CUTS TO OUR STATE CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE PRE-K THRU 12TH GRADE STUDENTS THEIR FUTURE, THEIR DESTINY IF YOU MUST CUT OR CHANGE ANYTHING PLEASE TRY AND TAKE ANOTHER AVENUE
