Act to STOP Sequestration now
Our students deserve the best education
Without action, sequestration cuts will take place THIS Friday, March 1.
It is anticipated that the cuts to education and other domestic programs will be 5.3 percent, and will impact federal funds for school budgets for the 2013-14 school year.
These cuts would affect millions of students and lead to potentially significant job losses and program eliminations for the nation’s schools, the educators who run them, and the students they educate.
According to reports recently issued by The White House, New York will lose approximately $42.7 million in funding for Kindergarten to 12th grade education. For children with disabilites, New York will lose approximately $36.3 million in funds for nearly 500 teachers, aides, and staff. And Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately 4,300 children.
Our children cannot afford these devastating cuts — they deserve the best education that our global economy demands.
Tell Congress to stop these cuts to our childrens’ future. Our children deserve better.
The Lonely Conservative noticed that this message sounds oddly like the fundraising/scaremongering e-mails sent out by Stephanie Cutter: “Where do you think our middle school principal got his talking points?”
She’s not planning to shut up.
