Dear Friend,

Please join us in signing this petition ( asking the State Board of Education to reject the expansion of 2 charter schools in Little Rock that will draw nearly 3,000 students out of the Little Rock School District.  From the sign on letter:

"These proposed charter school expansions will reduce the LRSD student population by thousands and cause the closure of numerous LRSD schools. Expanding charters that are far more segregated by race, income and need than LRSD will further divide our community."

Since our founding in 1963, the Arkansas Public Policy Panel has worked to desegregate our schools and to make sure EVERY student has a high quality opportunity to learn.  Please join us in saying NO to separate and unequal again. Join us in standing up for a high quality public education system that represents our full community and meets the needs of ALL children.  

Thank you, and please share this email with your friends, neighbors and families.


The Arkansas Public Policy Panel is a statewide organization dedicated to achieving social and economic justice by organizing citizen groups around the state, educating and supporting them to be more effective and powerful, and linking them with one another in coalitions and networks. The Panel seeks to bring balance to the public policy process in Arkansas.
