Your Lobbying Efforts Are Paying Off

Even thought the Senate voted today to lift the cap on Charter schools, the bill was amended to remove language allowing school districts to privatize teachers.  Due to your constant pressure, we were able to win a hard fought victory.
However, the battle is far from over.  Bills to expand "schools of choice", public dollars paying for private school and home school students who attend public schools and other bills in the group of bills 618-624, are still out there.  Keep the pressure on Sen. Howard WalkerTell him SB 618-624 do nothing to improve education or create jobs in Michigan!
If you have not gotten your 5 signatures on the Walker recall petitions, do it now!  Even our superintendent has written a letter to our legislators stating he is opposed to the group of bills.  What are you waiting for?
