SENATE TO VOTE ON EDUCATION JOBS PACKAGE THIS WEEK!The Senate is expected to vote on an education jobs package this week, possibly as early as Wednesday, taking up the bill passed by the House earlier this month. We are facing an education crisis, with hundreds of thousands of educators being laid off, class sizes growing, and programs critical to students’ success being cut or eliminated.  Our students’ education and the future of our nation are at stake!The education jobs package will save over 130,000 educator jobs and will help ensure that our students get the support and attention they need to succeed.   

CONTACT YOUR SENATORS TODAY! Passing this bill in the Senate will not be easy.  60 votes are needed to move the bill forward.  Every vote is critical.

  • Call 1-866-608-6355 to contact your Senators.  You will hear talking points and will be connected to the United States Capitol Switchboard – ask for one of your Senators.  Tell your Senator that public education faces a budget catastrophe and that he/she should VOTE YES on a $10 billion education jobs fund.  Remember to call back to speak with your other Senator.
