SMALL SCHOOLS GROUP LAUNCHES LOBBYING PUSH
The pro-rural schools grassroots group, Class I's United, has launched a late-season lobbying effort in the Nebraska Unicam to oppose LB 1048, which they see as destructive for the state's smaller schools.
The group, led by Marilyn Meerkatz (firstname.lastname@example.org), is urging citizens to beat the bushes to find people to send emails, write letters and make phone calls to senators, write letters to the editor, and take advantage of legislative recess days, March 26 and 29, to visit senators in their home districts.
The group is urging contact with alumni, relatives, community leaders, high school representatives, friends and anyone else who can make a cogent case for keeping the Class I schools from being consolidated against their will, in many cases.
