PEP Grant eliminated for 2012!? Act now!


Last week, Congressman Duncan Hunter, who chairs the House Subcommittee with jurisdiction over ESEA, introduced a bill that eliminates PEP (along with 42 other programs). Please share with your members and have them send emails, phone calls, etc. to their own legislators, but also to the members of the Subcommittee, whose websites and phone numbers are listed below (there is contact information on each members Web page). This type of grassroots communication is essential in the current fiscal climate!! Sample language is attached.
