Members of a new advocacy group believe it's time for parents to make their voices heard on K-12 education funding in Nebraska.
Nebraska Parents for Public Education started last summer with a small group of parents from Omaha. They quickly settled on an area of common concern: school funding. In September, a half-dozen members testified at a legislative hearing on the topic in Gretna. The group also has connected via Skype with groups in Mississippi and Chadron, Neb.
