We, the undersigned, urge state lawmakers to make state funding for education a priority.
We believe that providing our children with a quality education benefits our communities and our state and helps ensure a prosperous future for all.
Nebraska has a constitutional obligation to provide for public education. Few other programs rise to the level of a constitutional obligation. We also believe we have a moral obligation to provide our children with a quality education.
Yes, we need to balance the budget -- but not on the backs of children.
