That’s right … and maybe worse – that puts funding for the incredible WritingFix web site in jeopardy too! I’m a Writing Project Consultant, and in fact I’m teaching a class right now for the Northern Nevada Writing Project. These are programs and resources that have proved invaluable over time.
From the WritingFix web site:
WritingFix is in real danger of disappearing. The National Writing Project–the most successful and effective national professional development organization in the history of our country–is in true danger of losing its funding. The NWP’s annual funding to our Northern Nevada Writing Project could very well go away, which means this website would no longer be available; in addition, thousands of other NWP-sponsored projects all over the country would disappear. ClickÂ here to read details about this frightening budget development. If you, your colleagues, and your students value this website, we urge you to send a letter to any of our nation’s legislators, asking them to signÂ George Miller’s Dear Colleague Letter in support of the NWP.Â These letters must be received by March 12. Please don’t delay. Even a short letter will do. As this website has tried to prove since 2001, writing is powerful. Writing a letter today could save this website and a powerful national organization that has supported teachers for over thirty years.
Please contact you representatives!
Learning is messy!!!
