More than 4,000 parents, educators and students have signed the Washington Kids Can’t Wait Petition so far. We need your help to present the petition to Gov. Chris Gregoire with 10,000 signatures.

Please ask three people to sign the Washington Kids Can’t Wait Petition to help us pass 10,000 signatures by Friday, April 3rd.

And, tell them to take a moment to ADD A COMMENT when they sign about why this is important—our voice matters!

Reaching our goal will send a loud and clear message that:

• We want our lawmakers to protect funding for Washington’s children and schools; and
• We want our lawmakers to redefine basic education to pay for what our children need to succeed in college, job training, work and life.

Next week, state lawmakers will release a budget proposal that will make cuts in our public education system in order to close a historic budget shortfall. Kids in our public schools will feel the real impacts of these cuts.

Our lawmakers need to know that we are paying attention and will hold them responsible for investing in our children’s future.

Please ask three of your family, friends and colleagues to sign the Washington Kids Can’t Wait Petition so we can reach our goal of 10,000 signatures by Friday, April 3rd.

Thank you for supporting children and schools!
