Children and their education shouldn’t be pawns in a political game; quality education is a right. This is why we’re asking you to stand together right now with caring adults from across the country and tell Congress that failure to compromise isn’t an option. When we hit 10,000 signatures, we’ll present the petition to Congress.
Please take 30 seconds to stand up and be counted today. Congress must act by the end of 2012. That means we’re just days away from a catastrophe for American children and families. If there was ever a time to Stand Up – it’s NOW.
Stand Up for low-income three and four year-olds in Nashville, Houston, Boston and hundreds of other cities who desperately need a good early childhood education.
Stand Up for disadvantaged students in Denver, Chicago, Seattle, and Phoenix and other cities and towns across the country who can’t afford to lose their classroom teachers, special education services, and after school programs.
