Letter to the Editor | Rodney Davis invited to school

I received a targeted mailing for teachers from Rodney Davis. The large headline states: "A strong advocate for teachers and students." Six bullet points tout what he supports, promotes, is fighting for and improving.

I looked high and low and couldn't find any evidence that he is trying to repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision and Government Pension Offset, or that he is increasing funding for special ed, Pre-K education and school nutrition programs.

Promotes school transparency and accountability? When did you last speak with a school board? Mr. Davis, you have an open invitation to visit my fourth-grade class at Leal School in Urbana to share your progress on these efforts. The first bell rings at 8:10.
