FreedomWorks Puts Out Call In Support Of School Reform Senate Approval

I got this today from the good folks over at FreedomWorks:

Urgent Action Needed in Louisiana

Call Now for School Choice:

On Wednesday, April 4th the Louisiana Senate will be voting on two education reform bills, H974 and H976.  But some of these Senators are still undecided. It is time we demand these Senators vote yes on HB974 to reform teacher tenure and HB976 to expand school choice.

The vote on the Senate floor Wednesday will be very close, as many of these Senators are committed to special interests over the needs of our children.

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NEAP), Louisiana ranks 49th in educational performance, with only 18% of students considered proficient in reading and math.

These numbers are particularly troubling given that the state and local governments spend nearly $12,000 per student annually on a failed system.

Tell these Senators to put the needs of our children first, and to vote YES on HB974 and HB976.
