NCLB Outrages

The Time is NOW

In his latest report to IRA members, lobbyist Rich Long says that congressional
offices are being flooded with letters from teachers supporting Reading
First. It would certainly make an impact if those offices were flooded with
letters opposing it from you and your colleagues.

Although your letters
could be--and should be--short, you should try to mention at least one way
in which Reading First is harming y our students. Those of you who are not
classroom teachers could cite instances that teachers or parents have
recounted to you.

Let's get on this bandwagon!
