On May 26, 2011, Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) sent out a Dear Colleague letter in the U.S. Senate asking members to support increasing the Title II set-aside for national professional development programs, including the National Writing Project, to 5 percent. This letter is a Senate version of the similar House of Representatives letter from a few weeks ago.
Please get the word out to everyone on your list of supporters. Ask them to email or call their senators as soon as possible—by no later than the end of the day on Tuesday, June 9. (from the NWP Works! Ning)
