NEA Education Insider Urgent Alert: June 23, 2010

Untitled Document


The House of Representatives is expected to vote very soon on funding to save educator jobs.  We need your help TODAY to make sure this urgent relief passes. 

Call your Representative today, by dialing 1-866-608-6355.  You will hear talking points and will be connected to the United States Capitol Switchboard – ask for your House Member.  Tell him/her to VOTE YES on funding to save educator jobs. 

You can also e-mail your Members of Congress and urge a YES vote for education jobs funding.

The need is great:

  • We are facing an education emergency – a catastrophe that is growing worse by the day and threatening our children’s, and our nation’s, future.
  • More than 80 percent of school districts across the country have had to, or expect to, layoff educators, leading to crowded classrooms and dramatic cuts to essential programs.  In some places, the school day and school week are being shortened, reducing learning time. 

But YOU can make a difference.  Call Congress today.
