- If a private school accept vouchers, will they be bound to Desantis rule of what books that school can use without losing funding? - Short answer: no. Listen to the recording for the full answer.
- How do you learn who your official is and what their appointed committees are? - Look up your State Representative or Senator here. Then click on your Representative or Senator to navigate to their individual profile page and find out their Committee assignments.
- What would you consider the most effective organizing strategies over the long-term? - Short answer: we're figuring it out!
- Are we seeing a growing shortage of teachers, jailers, healthcare workers (especially for nursing homes)? - We don't know! We'll have to look at the data.
