Petition against HR 1350- Now what?
- Thank you for signing the petition against HR 1350. So now what....
Though we have lost the fight in the House, please do continue to sign
the petition located at:
Our voices still count. Hold your congresspeople accountable to their
vote. Write them and ask why they have chosen to vote yes on the
passage of a bill that diminishes the quality of education for students
I will be working towards sending this petition to the Senate in the
hopes that we can shape a better IDEA bill.
I will continue to communicate with Senate staffers regarding parental
concerns on IDEA. So, don't give up on the petition.
If you haven't signed yet, your name has never been more important. Let
them know you did not support the passage of HR 1350 and the Senate must
draft a response bill that truly reflects the concerns of parents,
maintains procedural safeguards as they stand, maintains a discipline
policy that meets the needs of students with disabilities, maintains
paperwork that holds our schools accountable to our children's education
and promises the full funding of up to 40% that has been promised since
The fight continues...
All the best,
