When Congress returns to Washington, DC after the election, they will be debating what to do about looming cuts to education and other programs, tax cuts for the wealthy and the middle class, and potentially long-term deficit reduction. The outcome of these debates will have a direct impact on students, educators, and public education! At stake are services to over nine million students, and the potential loss of over 78,000 education jobs.
Will Congress choose kids over CEOs, or will they continue to give tax breaks to the wealthiest while slashing programs that serve vulnerable children? Will they stop putting the burden for deficit reduction on the shoulders of kids, or will they continue to let corporations get away without paying their fair share?
Now is the time to make our voices heard. Don?t let them make the wrong choices!
