From Harford Students Count on Us:
The Maryland State Senate will soon vote on the Protect Our Schools Act (HB978/SB871). Do you want your schools privatized? Do you want your school put in a state-run “recovery district”. Without passage of the Protect Our Schools Act, 80% of the formula evaluating school success will be based on standardized testing.
If we are going to successfully focus interventions for low-performing schools on research-based efforts that narrow opportunity gaps, rather than a privatization agenda, then we must pass this bill. If we are going to prevent for-profit charters from fleecing our already inadequate school funding, we must past this bill. If teachers and our community are going to have a voice in improving our schools, we must pass this bill.
Call you MD State Senator NOW!
Tell them to support the Protect Our Schools Act(HB978/SB871).
Tell them to reject privatization through voucher schemes and charter schools.
Tell them you want our teachers and community to have a voice in improving our schools
Please also email your legislators.
Thank you for helping to protect our students and our public schools.
