URGENT: Tell Gov. Scott to VETO HB 7069 and SB 2500 (the state budget bill)
The Legislature has turned its back on our public schools and the 2.8 million students who attend them. The state budget lawmakers passed will starve our public schools and shortchange the teachers and school employees who make our schools work.
Speak Up on Institutional Racism
Institutional racism is deeply ingrained in our school system due to the flaws in our education system that don’t bridge the gaps in access and opportunity, they expand them. If we do not address this in our own schools and communities nothing will change. Our students deserve better, and we must lead the change.
