Last week, Congressional Republicans unveiled their new tax plan. Students and educators will suffer terribly if the bill becomes law.
This $5 trillion plan is a tax giveaway to the wealthiest and corporations, paid for on the backs of working families and students. It jeopardizes the ability of states and local communities to adequately fund public schools. Nationally, the bill could lead to $250 billion less in public education funding, and nearly 250,000 education jobs put at risk.
We must put a stop to this. Contact your representative right now. Tell them students and educators can’t afford to fund the GOP tax plan.
Cutting 250,000 jobs takes teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, and administrators out of our schools-the very people who, every day, inspire students to learn, grow, and dream big.
So here’s our choice: Fight for the educators, well-rounded curriculum, and support services our students need and deserve; or do nothing, and watch that money go to millionaires and billionaires instead.
