There was a great turnout at the rally, great speakers in support or HB 2292 – including Dr. Mary Byrne and Ze’ev Wurman, and there were over 60 written testimonies submitted in support of HB 2292.  The House Education Committee heard the proponents of HB 2292 first, and then listened to the opponents.  No vote was taken in committee yesterday, and we do not have a scheduled time or date when/if that will happen – so please, keep emailing, calling and writing the House Education Committee, your own representative and senator, and Governor Brownback… NOW is the time to STOP COMMON CORE in Kansas!  

Thank you_apple

Everyone-

We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth…For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it. —Patrick Henry

CALL TO ACTION

Hi Everyone-
Right now we have one of the biggest calls to action of the session. There are FOUR House Education Committee members that MUST hear from us ALL WEEK LONG. Even if you’ve already called/emailed, please, DO IT AGAIN and AGAIN!

If you are from one of these districts, we need your help to get as many people as possible in those districts to call. So, SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR NEIGHBORS, FRIENDS, FAMILY, ETC.. If you’re not in one of these districts, your phone calls and emails still matter! Please spread the word and MAKE THE CALLS and SEND THE EMAILS yourselves.

We CANNOT let up on these four right now. Please, call them EVERY DAY this coming week. It only takes five seconds per call to say, “Representative, please support HB 2292. Thanks.” That’s it! Please repost this and share it and tweet it and whatever else it is you do to get people to TAKE ACTION!!!
