Fellow author, speaker, radio host, and educator, Stacey Kannenberg, writes, I was so honored to be selected as the Wisconsin Delegate at Mom Congress because as many of you know my mission is to empower parents, kids and teachers to work together to change education. Obviously being known as the “Get Ready To Learn Mom” education is near and dear to my heart which is why I am reaching out for your help. Our children’s quality education is under threat from budget cuts-- music and arts programs, bus routes, sports, extracurricular activities, books, crossing guards, special needs, gifted and talented and foreign language programs are all on the cutting block--and teacher layoffs could mean perhaps as many as 35 or 45 students per classroom.
This is not the answer! Students need individual attention, not crowded classrooms and fewer educators, to succeed in the 21st century and help keep America competitive.
The good news is that an education amendment has been added to the pending jobs bill in Congress, which will help schools avoid such drastic cuts.
So my dear readers, what can YOU do? TODAY, Tuesday, May 25, tell Congress to pass #EducationJobsFund to our support teachers without cuts in classroom education.
