Action Alert

**Action Alert** (March 9, 2022)

Calls and emails needed!

Contact members of the House and ask them to oppose these bills:

SB 498 -This bill, deceptively named the Anti-Racism Act, is a last ditch effort to pass a reboot of HB 4011, the Anti-Stereotyping Act, which did not advance from committee. The bill, while slightly less egregious than the House version, still could potentially hamstring educators from teaching accurate, unbiased history. Additionally, the complaint process lacks due process protections for educators.

Legislative Update: March 5, 2021

Two bills now moving through the state Legislature could drain half a billion a year from our public schools. That’s one-quarter of the total state education budget for our schools for fiscal year 2019-2020. It could mean the loss of up to 3,000 full-time teaching and service personnel positions.

Our schools are starved for funding already. These bills would threaten the very future of public education in our state. 

Legislative Update: March 12, 2021

We're halfway through the 2021 Legislative Session and the attacks on public education and workers have ramped up this week.  Bills to permit education savings accounts and to prohibit the payroll deduction of union dues are moving quickly.
