3-16-22 – HB63 PASSED THE HOUSE AND IS ON THE SENATE EDUCATION COMMITTEE AGENDA FOR TOMORROW.
- This bill is overreaching and takes local control away from our elected leaders.
- This bill specifically targets JCPS and will force Jefferson County taxes to go up.
- Our district serves a high minority, high trauma population, and having armed police in their schools adds to their trauma and feeds the pipeline to prison
- Our community has spoken and we want all available resources to go toward front-end supports that nurture and educate our children, not reactionary, costly, punitive, back-end measures. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
