In less than two weeks, Congress will be back in Washington, DC, making decisions that will impact students, educators, and public education for decades to come. Policymakers will face some tough questions in the coming weeks. We must make sure they are ready to rise to the challenge and make the correct choices.
Here is a link to a clever video ad that will resonate with Iowa Arts Educators. Will Congress choose kids over CEOs, or will they continue to give tax breaks to the wealthiest while slashing programs that serve vulnerable children? Will they stop putting the burden for deficit reduction on the shoulders of kids, or will they continue to let corporations get away without paying their fair share?
Now is the time to make our voices heard. Don’t let them make the wrong choices!
