1) Students take the lead in the struggle for quality education
Students are now making up a large part of the audience at school board hearings, and they are not accepting the excuses being given by their elders for failing to protect quality education.See Students rally, and then see them speak to the board in clear, deliberate, powerful speeches, demonstrating what it is that we can lose if the board continues on its ruinous course.

4) How to help with the May 15 Election
Are you doing everything you can do to help with the election? Of course you can spread the word to your contacts, neighbors, etc. What else can you do? Here are some ideas:
- Go to www.poweroften.us and sign up for the online phone bank. Start making calls, right from home!
- Get a list of voters in your area and pay them a visit. It can be a very enriching experience to have a meaningful conversation with your neighbors about the value of public education. Email Michael Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer for the Get out the Vote effort.
