Dear Friends of our Gifted Children of Alabama,
The Senate has presented a budget to the Governor that includes a line item for Gifted Education (see http://www.alsde.edu/Home/Legislative/Default.aspx and http://www.lfo.alabama.gov/pdfs/FY2013%20Budget%20Info/ETF%20FY%202013%20PASSED%20SENATE.pdf)
Now is the time that everyone needs to take action. If you have written, emailed, or Tweeted, I thank you for your participation. Please contact Governor Bentley today to ask the following:
Please add gifted education to your Education Trust Fund budget as recommended by the Senate.
You can email the Governor at this address: http://governor.alabama.gov/contact/contact_form.aspx
Also, if you Tweet, you can message him at @GovernorBentley If you have not been on Twitter, now is the time to try it. It is a strong social media and our elected officials do pay attention to it.
Please forward this email to all of your friends and family. We need to truly let our Governor know the importance of gifted education.
Audrey Fine, President
Alabama Association for Gifted Children
