Kentucky Education Action Team (KEAT)
Weekly Budget Messages:
SECOND KEAT ACTION ALERT
For three weeks the Kentucky PTA is sending its members messages regarding the Governor’s proposed education budget cuts. Each week we will focus on a different program that if cut will directly affect our students’ education.
Here is a template letter for the second week’s budget cut: funding for preschools. We are asking that you send this letter to your Senate or House Representative.
- Feel free to add your own personal experience with each program and more information about how you feel it benefits the state and our children.
- If you do ask for a response, please make sure to include your email address, phone number, address and/or other contact information.
- Please share any responses you receive from legislators with Sharon Whitworth, Kentucky PTA Legislative Commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org .
It is vital that we reach out to our legislatures at this crucial time. We appreciate all that you do for the children of Kentucky.
