Education Advocates Pressure the Assembly
November 20th, 2009

The Alliance for Quality Education is rallying the troops in anticipation of a vote on a deficit reduction plan on Monday. The education advocacy group wants to put pressure on the Assembly to publicly oppose education cuts. Senate Democrats have already made their stance against education cuts perfectly clear. Here is a recent email from the Alliance For Quality Education titled “A Line in the Sand — Oppose Education Cuts.”

Dear XXXX,

We need your help in stopping proposed mid-year education cuts that are currently on the table. In October Governor Paterson proposed $686 million in mid-year school aid cuts. Yesterday both the Democratic and Republican leaders of the Senate drew a line in the sand. Democratic Senate Leader John Sampson said that education cuts are “not going to happen.”

However, the Assembly has not made it clear on where they stand. We need you to contact your Assembly members today, asking them to oppose mid-year cuts to education, and to join the Senate in protecting students.

By Monday night the vote may be done so we need to act now.

Please click HERE to email your Assembly member asking them to oppose cuts to education and thanking your Senator for opposing cuts to education.

Thank you,

Billy Easton
