Today is #WearRed4Ed and Call Legislators Wednesday!
We are asking that you CALL or EMAIL your legislators to ask that they SUPPORT Governor Beshear’s education first funding. Use one of the following scripts below when you contact legislators.
Dear [Senator or Representative] ________________
Hello my name is ______________ and I am a [your position] and [local affiliate like JCTA] and KEA member living in your district. I’m writing to ask that you support Governor Beshear’s education first funding. A meaningful increase in the SEEK formula will be integral in supporting the educational opportunities for our students. Giving teachers a one time pay increase will help with the teacher attrition crisis.
Thank you for your service!
