Important: Let’s Thank Those House Members Who Support Charter Reform
Good news. Fifteen members of the House of Representatives led by Mark Pocan and Jamaal Bowman signed a letter to Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies House Appropriations Committee, Rosa DeLauro, and the subcommittee’s Ranking Member, Tom Cole.
You can read that letter here. The letter not only asks for a reduction in Charter School Program (CSP) funds in the next budget, it also asks for real CSP reform. In addition to more oversight, members ask that any charter school run by a for-profit management company be ineligible to receive CSP funds.
Now is the time we show our thanks. Click on the four tweets below to send that message of thanks. It takes seconds to do!
