Education Insider

 

Special Edition - May 6, 2003


May 8, 2003 -- Education Day
Educate Congress on Tax Cuts vs. America's Public Schools!


Across the nation, schools are suffering. Tens of thousands of education employees have received pink slips and looming state budget deficits promise more to come.

Yet Congress seems oblivious to the unfunded mandates it is imposing on our schools, to crowded classrooms, to course offerings cut, to schools in need of repair and renovation, to parents facing increased fees, and more.

The proposed tax cuts jeopardize not only critical federally-funded education programs, but also state revenue.

Advocacy groups across the country are educating Congress this week on how the proposed tax cuts affect real people in every state. On Thursday, May 8, the message is education.

Action Alert!
On Thursday, May 8 send Congress a message: Do the right thing. Don't put tax breaks before the real needs of our states and our schools!
