U.S. Representative Grijalva stands with NPE in call for hearings on testing!
Six-term Arizona Representative Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ-3), a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, has responded to NPE’s call for Congressional hearings. Representative Grijalva released the following statement in support of NPE’s call for action.
“The need for an impartial and transparent hearing on mandatory testing and privatization efforts directed at public education, is critical. We need to have an open discussion about the dismantling of public education. I hope the leadership of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives will hold hearings that allow our public schools and the families they serve the opportunity to have an open and honest hearing.”
Over the next week, we are asking our Friends & Allies to call members of Congress to voice support for Congressional hearings. Phone, email, or tweet the need for Congressional hearings.
