Say NO to the Senate Version of the
Moratorium on Charter Expansion!
The Drama Club presents
Peter Pan Jr.
Senate bill S2887 threatens charter
school opportunities and must be
stopped. Introduced by Senator Shirley
Turner, the bill would halt charter
school expansions of existing schools.
With more than 20,000 students
waiting for a charter school seat, the
attack of high-quality educational
options of urban families must stop.
Our voices need to be heard by the
Senate Education Committee members.
