ASK and INFORM your Candidates
Do legislative candidates know how education cuts have affected our schools, colleges, and students? Do they know that, if elected, their future constituents want 2013 to be the “Year of the Student” when the legislature finally takes action to fix our broken education funding system?
They will if you tell them!
