Nearly 19,000 friends of public schools have signed NYSUT's petition seeking restoration of $250 million in state aid. More support is needed urgently. Please continue to ask members, friends, family and other supporters of public education to sign. The $250 million is currently set aside for competitive grants that will put many of the neediest districts -- those that depend most on state aid -- at a severe disadvantage.
Please let me know of important happenings in the lives of BTA members, so that I can print them in the BTA NEWS from time to time.
