Today was my first day to call any representatives. I thought it would be a daunting task, but it was actually extremely easy! It was so easy that I emailed them too! The calls and emails were so overwhelming that HB 3398 has been postponed until TOMORROW, FEBRUARY 20, at 11:30 am.
This is literally all you have to do… call the numbers and/or email.
The secretary or voicemail will answer and you will tell them:
1) My name is_________. 2) I am from ___________. 3) I want the representative to vote “NO!” on HB 3398. 4) My phone number is _________ (if they even ask for a phone number). It’s literally that easy friends. Remember, these people are working for us!
NORMAN AND NOBLE FRIENDS: Scott Martin especially wants to hear from you!
These are some great OKLAHOMA blogs, that do a great job of analyzing the situation:
This is an excerpt of my email:
“Please VOTE “NO” on HB 3398. I believe that this bill will prove to be the catalyst of “re-segregation” in our public schools system. Not by race, but by power and money. This bill will create further marginalization of students. Instead of dismantling the public school system: let’s provide increased funding and inquire teacher expertise to build our system to the best in the world!
My main concern is that this will be a catalyst towards corporate takeover. Our students will not be learning how to be citizens that: are responsible, possess empathy, a person who stands up against injustice, or feels a responsibility to leave this world a better place than what they found it to be. Allowing private entities and corporations to take over education will solely ensure that our students are numbers, and not names.”
