Just two days left: Urge the House to pass 2261 on Monday!

The House of Representatives will be voting on 2261 in the morning session THIS MONDAY at 10 am. We have from now until then to urge our Legislators to make history on Monday by redefining basic education for the first time in 30 years.

Please email or call your legislator and urge them to vote YES on Monday. Find out how your Representative voted on the original version of 2261 here. (Thanks to the League of Education Voters for creating the document!).  Also contact Speaker of the House Frank Chopp and urge him to use his leadership to pass 2261.

If you can, join us on Monday morning in Olympia for this historic vote! Education reform advocates will be working the doors of the House Chamber, pulling their Representatives off of the House floor, and bringing notes to Representatives to ensure we have the votes to pass the bill.

We are almost there. The tireless work of education advocates from all over the state has gotten us to the historic point, and we’re close to passing legislation that will change how 1 million Washington schoolchildren are taught. Please help us pass the finish line!
