Lawmakers need to hear from you!
Use Your Voice at the Capitol this Legislative Session.
Right now, lawmakers are making decisions on bills that affect your students, your classroom, and your profession. Our Teacher Action Team has been hard at work identifying policy solutions for equitable school funding, increasing teacher diversity, protecting teacher licensure reform, literacy advocacy, and eliminating discipline disparities.
Now, we need YOUR voice to remind lawmakers to do what’s right for our children and teachers.
Please take 3 minutes to write a short paragraph to your legislators about one of the following issues most important to you. Your message will go directly to the State Senator and State Representative who are the representatives for your legislative district.
(1)Eliminate suspensions for kids in grades K-3.
(2) Protect the tiered teacher licensure system.
(3) Fully fund the Special Education and ELL Services cross-subsidies.
(4) Eliminate the compensatory aid cap.
(5) Eliminate literacy gaps through investments in science-based instructional methods.
