High Stakes…Act Now!

Right now, politicians in Washington are making a HUGE decision. This decision will determine what teaching and learning looks like in America’s schools over the next decade.

For students and educators, the stakes couldn’t be higher. We need your voice.

The widespread consensus in Washington is that the current education law* is broken. How the Senate will fix it, though, is ultimately up to you.

Fill out the form on this page to start writing a message to your senator.

*The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) or No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

Members contact you legislators regarding The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).  The link is below, and it takes three minutes start to finish.

A CALL TO ACTION has been issued to IEA members, urging them to immediately contact their state representatives and tell the lawmakers to VOTE NO on Gov. Rauner’s “right to work” bill.
