The long wait is nearly over. We expect the House of Representatives to vote on the new version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act by this Thursday or sooner!
The bill, S. 1177, is a bipartisan agreement between the House and Senate that will be a big improvement over current law, and we need yourhelp to make sure it passes in the House this week.
This is urgent. Will you email your representative nowto tell them to get this done for students?
Or, if you’ve already emailed, will you make a phone call? Call your representative now by dialing 866-331-7233, and then entering your ZIP code. We’ll give you everything you need to advocate over the phone.
You have engaged in unprecedented mobilization and advocacy on behalf of students to close the chapter on the failed No Child Left Behind law. That chapter is almost over, but we can’t let up now.
Will you please take a moment to write to your representative to get this bill passed? It will only take a few minutes.
We must keep the pressure on our elected leaders to produce a bill that, when signed by the president, gives every student the opportunity, support, tools, and time to learn.
We’re nearly there. Thank you for taking action now.
