Protect Our Local Schools
Protect Our Local Schools is a coalition of parents, teachers, principals, superintendents and school boards that formed to defeat Amendment 3, a measure that would have a devastating impact on our schools.
Here’s what it would do:
- It would take away local control of our schools from teachers, parents and school districts, and hand it over to Jefferson City politicians
- It would take a one-size-fits-all approach to education, forcing teachers to “teach to a test” rather than focusing on actual instruction and learning.
- It would force taxpayers to pay for costly government-mandated standardized tests even though school funding is already a problem.
This amendment must be defeated because it treats students like numbers and takes local control away from parents, teachers, and school districts and hands it to Jefferson City politicians. This costly amendment is a one-size-fits-all approach to our children that would force taxpayers to spend money on even more government-mandated standardized tests.
