Political Action

Political Action is the best way to be heard and responded to.

We are asking each of you to fill out a post card that will be sent to our Congressman, Jimmy Panetta.

HR 610 reflects Secretary Devos’s agenda, ignoring evidence as to what actually works in public education. This administration is trying to promote privatization and allowing corporations to make a profit at the expense of students, families, and the common good.

We must stop this bill and any others like it, if we are to retain a fair, free, and equitable public education system that benefits all.


HR 610 would:

  • Slash federal funding for public schools.

  • Require vouchers in all states including California in order to receive federal funds (Title I)

  • Remove protections for children with disabilities and those who come from economically disadvantaged families, and

  • Repeal nutritional standards for school meals, such as the requirement to increase the availability of fruits and vegetables

Possible personal notes:

Please OPPOSE vouchers,

Please OPPOSE the elimination of rights for our students,

Please OPPOSE reducing the nutritional standards of our school meals,

Please OPPOSE HR 610.
