On Tuesday, March 14, at noon, please join us for a rally to support public schools and draw attention to the threats posed by school privatization schemes and budget cuts. At 1:30, attend the hearing for LB 630, which would bring charter schools to Nebraska and threaten public school funding. Here’s how to get involved:
- Attend the rally at noon on the West side of the Nebraska State Capitol (near the Abraham Lincoln statue).
- Attend the 1:30 p.m. hearing on LB 630 in Capitol hearing room 1525, which would bring charter schools to Nebraska.
- Testify in opposition to the bill, or consider submitting written testimony by email to the Education Committee. Ask that your opposition be read into the official record.
- Contact your state senator, as well as members of the Education Committee, and let them know you support public schools and oppose school privatization and budget cuts.
