hearing for the Geography Education bill (S.200) will be held on
Thursday Oct 31st in front of the Joint Education Committee at
the State House. It would be good if you can email the co-chairs
of that committee (by the end of this week) asking them to
“pass” the bill so that it can proceed in the legislature.
Stress that you are a teacher, parent ... and that more and
better geography is very important for the proper education of
our students ........
Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz Sonia.Chang-Diaz@masenate.gov
Representative Alice Peisch Alice.Peisch@mahouse.gov
or any other members of the committee https://malegislature.gov/Committees/Joint/J14
When you send emails can you also cc Erin Ryan email@example.com , office manager for Senator Brewer (the bill’s chief sponsor). Also let me know if you’ve sent a message so that we can use that information at the hearing.
