Legislative day 23 the talk continues on HB 301 the Education Savings Account bill also known as the voucher bill. I hope you took some time to contact your local representative so you can weigh- in on the bill. You communicating with your local Reps and Senators is key to the success of our desired outcome. No matter how you slice this- the shifting of public school money for private purposes is a value of some of our legislators just think is the way to go. They do not want to hear about the data that would inform policy makers that this is not a good idea on many levels. Keep the message in front of our legislators. It will make a difference.
I just got the message this morning that HB 301 will be in Ways and Means this morning. Be sure to contact your representative today to let them know the impact on your local system. You can bring this issue home to them and provide the data that will show the loss of funding that will occur if this bill moves forward.
This will be our focus today. Please reach out to your folks!
