Author’s note: I know it’s Friday. But, I had this written and scheduled to go live on Tuesday and it didn’t publish. I didn’t want to wait until next Tuesday, so here you go.
For this Tuesday’s post, I am reposting two things I received from my readers–one on Facebook and one on Twitter. The Tuesday To-Do list is your action items for the week–simple things you can do to advocate and lobby for causes for our kids. This week’s issues are for Virginia residents and for everyone.
I received this one on January 10:
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressmen Bill Cassidy, M.D., the Co-Chair of the House Dyslexia Caucus, submitted a resolution calling for the House to acknowledge the impact of dyslexia and urge schools and educational agencies to address its impact on students. Dr. Cassidy released the following statement:
“Dyslexia affects millions of Americans, including many students. We know that many with dyslexia are among our brightest and most successful. If dyslexia is identified in elementary school and the appropriate resources are given to these children, America can produce more teachers, more scientists and more entrepreneurs. This resolution pushes schools and educational agencies to address this challenge and provide evidence-based solutions for dyslexic students.”
Click the link, enter your zip code, contact your U.S. Congressional Representative and ask them to support this Resolution.
The second one concerns Virginia residents. It’s about adding more information to a driver’s license or state issued ID card, which I think is a fantastic idea. Here is the tweet so that you Virginia readers can either read more or retweet it:
