An Example of a Letter to Mail, Fax, or E-mail Your Representative Regarding the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (H.R. 1)

Mailed or Faxed Correpondence...

To A Representative:

The Honorable (full name)
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative (last name):

The H.R. 1 - No Child Left Behind Act is an expensive education bill that increases the government's role in the education of children. The current failures of American public schools are a result of an already robust federal role. Through the House of Representatives additions to the President's proposed plan, spending would increase from 11 percent to 22 percent.

I urge you to support the amendments to H.R. 1 which would provide choice and flexibility to families. Without the passage of these amendments, the bill should be stopped. The academic ills of American schools can only be cured by fundamental reform that strives to increase academic achievement through less regulation, accountability and academic achievement through school choice.

Thank you for your effort to change this bill.

Sincerely,

(Your Name*)

*Be sure to include your complete address in the letter.
