Action Alerts

All Texas children deserve to receive a high-quality education.

Position

The League of Women Voters of the Midland Area believes that the Midland County Educational Service Agency (ESA) can serve an essential role in the delivery of educational services in this area.

Position

The League’s program consists of those governmental issues that the League has chosen (over the years) for concerted study and action at the local level. The program process is specified in the bylaws. At each annual meeting, members are asked to adopt the program consisting of issues on which League members reached a consensus. State and national League studies and consensus are considered at their respective conventions. Positions must be readopted each year by League members at the annual meeting in order to remain on the program of issues for possible action.
Sleep Health

A lack of sleep is taking a toll on teen health, safety, and learning. Our position promotes "healthy school hours" for all students based on adolescent sleep research. Too-early school start times are a national public health concern with consequences impacting children, families, and the community at large. Besides forcing many children to walk and drive to school in pre-dawn darkness, these hours are creating a generation deprived of the sleep that growing brains and bodies require.

Education

Position

If children are found to be abused and/or neglected by their families, the League of Women Voters of Louisville and Jefferson County supports efforts that will either restore a healthful family unit; or should that goal appear to be unachievable, place those children in programs seeking to provide permanent homes.  Justice for abused and neglected children requires timely action with the child's best interest as the central focus for decision making.

Position

The League emphasizes the importance of continuous in-service and support services for teachers and administrators to enable implementation of non-violent disciplinary strategies that are consistent with educational goals. The League opposes corporal punishment.
