Expanding vouchers to unaccountable private schools. Stripping teachers of their right to due process. Converting neighborhood public schools into privately run charter schools unanswerable to local school boards and taxpayers. Proceeding with tax cuts for the wealthy while starving public schools.

These are some of the hot-button issues that will affect students, educators and public education in this year’s state legislative sessions. We need your help.

Will you share your story about a legislative issue that affects your students?

Your story will help illustrate what’s really happening in schools. We’ll use your story to advocate for legislation that benefits students and strengthens public education.
