Call your state rep NOW to oppose SB 618
The pressure is building in the state House to pass SB 618, the bill allowing for unlimited expansion of charter schools. There are still several Republican representatives who are opposed to the bill's provisions that remove the cap on charters without increasing accountability measures. But they are under intense pressure to vote in favor of SB 618.
Call your state representative right away -- contact information can be found at http://bit.ly/sBEt9 . Urge them to vote no on SB 618. Tell them that unchecked expansion of charter schools will hurt your district and your students, siphoning even more resources away from our neighborhood schools.
Take action now!
