We love our public schools* and we vote. This is the message we must take to the voting booth as a focus in all elections– local, state and national. There has been a bipartisan attack on our public schools and it will take a bipartisan effort to stop it. We must defend, not defund public education. Know where your candidates stand on public education issues and vote to support our students, teachers and communities.
#VotePublicEd also looks beyond the election: it’s an ongoing challenge to hold our elected officials accountable for making votes that benefit our students and public schools once elected.
These short-term objectives will enable us to achieve our long-term goal: high quality, equitable, well-funded public schools, subject to democratic oversight by their communities, for every single Hoosier child. Achieving this goal will ensure that our communities and our students thrive.
