911!

Just as we are waking up to the truth about what is in these rewrites – just as long over due debates on education reform are springing up all across our country – Congress has decided to charge forward with ESEA’s corporate-driven  plans to remake education in our country.

A final vote could happen as early as December 2nd.

CALL YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPS AND TELL THEM TO HOLD THEIR DARN HORSES.

Yes, we want change, but this bill is not the change we are asking for.

 It is the change that has been planned and “pre-cooked” behind the scenes by the  testing  and  charter  industries.

 Tell your representatives to vote “NO” on ESEA.

Then get all your friends to do the same.
