ACTION ALERT: HB 2506 hurts Kansas children and teachers

On Sunday the Kansas Legislature passed a bill that will further disservice Kansas children and teachers. House Bill 2506 eliminates due process for Kansas teachers, funds private schools with public tax dollars, and cuts funding for children who are struggling.

Let the Governor know you stand with Kansas teachers. Tell the Governor to VETO HB 2506. Sign the petition now.

THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. Students and Teachers under attack in Topeka.

Brothers and sisters.. No time to wait. I need you to pick up the phone and call your legislator RIGHT NOW.

Visit OpenKansas.org to find out who represents you.

As you may have heard, hundreds of teachers are standing vigil in Topeka today as the legislature debates important school funding legislation. Please read this urgent note from Larry Smith of United Teachers of Wichita and CALL NOW.

KS teachers could use some help today. Can you get word out to members to call legislators and tell them to vote no on these education funding bills? Key problems are taking away teacher due process rights and giving tax breaks to corporations for stealing kids out of public schools.

Call your KS legislator RIGHT NOW and tell them to pass a clean education funding bill and not attack students and teachers in the process.
