Congress has never met even half of its funding obligation under the law it passed to advance the opportunity of students with special needs.
Rolling back licensure regulations could vastly expand the number of students with untrained, unlicensed “teachers” in some districts.
This week: business tax cuts come under fire in New Hampshire, Illinois educators say it’s time for the governor to start governing, Kansas lawmakers consider ending teacher licensure, and Wisconsin honors its top education activists.
State governors have released their budget proposals, and it’s clear who respects education- and who does not.
Right-wing lawmakers say they are only trying to protect students from indecent materials. Or are they just trying to discredit public school educators?
“Kansans never needed a court ruling to know that Governor Brownback’s education cuts have had a devastating impact on our communities. Parents, teachers, and local leaders have struggled with higher fees, programs cuts and growing class sizes for far too long.”
A host of elected officials at every level shape our public schools. Go to the polls prepared!
Gov. Sam Brownback has slashed education funding and defended his actions. It’s up to Kansas voters and the courts to turn things around.
Elected officials at the local, state and federal levels determine what educators are expected to accomplish in the classroom and the resources they’ll have to pull it off. This November, most of those offices are up for election.
ALEC’s policies against students, public education, and middle-class families threatens the future of the nation.
