Senate education leaders need to hear from you!

Tell your senator to oppose any effort to break Senate rules to revive AB 1164.

In a last-minute move before summer recess, Assemblymember Tony Thurmond gutted a bill, AB 1164, that was previously intended to provide childcare for foster youth. In its place, Thurmond proposed a new law to increase protections for the lowest performing teachers by giving them an easier path to lifetime employment. To make matters worse, the bill denies local control flexibility for principals to offer other more promising new teachers another year in the classroom. Thurmond's AB 1164 outrageously undermines efforts to attract and help new teachers and support them to grow and be effective in the classroom.

Take action today and send your Senator a letter urging them to vote no on any effort to break the rules and revive AB 1164 this year.
