Tell Your Story
Education opportunity is about helping individuals to reach their goals and potential. Share your story or your children's story to help others understand why it's so important for students to have multiple, affordable educational options. Tell your story on social media, or contact us and we'll help you get it out there.
Call Your State Senator
State senators are inundated with contact from the teachers' unions and their members. With money from their members' dues, these organizations lobby our state senators constantly in an effort to retain strict control over your education dollars and to make sure that the current public education system maintains the status quo.
You can make a huge difference simply by picking up your phone and calling your state senator. Explain why school choice and education are so important to your family and to all of Nebraska's children. Demand that kids in Nebraska finally gain access to educational options that children in other states have had for decades.
If you're not sure who your state senator is, use this search tool. You can also contact the members of the Education Committee to help them understand the need for greater education opportunity for all of Nebraska's children. Members of the current Education Committee include the following:
