Arkansas Public Policy Panel shared Save Our Schools's event.
The Commissioner of Education accepted proposed school closures targeting marginalized communities in Little Rock yesterday. Please join Save Our Schools today, at Franklin Elementary as affected families respond to this decision made my unelected and unaccountable officials. Schools are one of the most sacred institutions in our neighborhoods and provide an anchor and identity to some communities. The loss of ownership felt by families when a school closes negatively impacts the mission of public education. We remain deeply disappointed in the Little Rock School District lack of engagement and lack of a transparent, accountable process before deciding to close these schools. We do not accept on face value the assertion that cuts of this level need to be made. While the loss of desegregation money is being used as justification, the budget situation has not been examined in full by a legitimate set of stakeholders, and a full set of options in response to the budget has not been considered by any representative or accountable party. Budget cuts without a legitimate process that builds public support will only exacerbate existing divisions and distrust among the diverse constituencies of LRSD and between Little Rock residents and the state government that still governs our schools. #StandUp4LR #LRSDListens #StandUp4PublicEducation
Parents, city officials, and the Save Our Schools campaign will give statements in response to Johnny Key's announcement of school closures.

Arkansas Public Policy Panel shared Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty's post.
It's great to see groups from across the state visiting towns in South Arkansas to inform people about public policy issues that affect our everyday lives. Thanks to the Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and Racial Disparities in the Arkansas Criminal Justice System Research Project for sharing information with the Concerned Citizens of the Marvell Area!

For all those concerned about the health of our National River, attend this meeting if you can. Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission to consider Appeal Recommendations The appeal brought by three Arkansas grandmothers questioned ADEQ's granting of a modified permit to EC Farms. The permit allowed a former 300-head sow farrowing operation to become, instead, a land application permit to dispose of hog manure from C&H Hog Farms, The change would allow 6.6 million gallons of hog waste to be spread on hundreds of acres within the Buffalo River watershed. On January 5, Administrative Law Judge Charles Moulton ruled in favor of grandmother Carol Bitting's contention that such a modification was improper. However, rather than requiring Ellis Campbell to apply for a new permit, Judge Moulton recommended that he be allowed to pay a required permit fee and be assigned a new permit number that reflects a different type of operations. Attorney for the grandmothers, Richard Mays submitted a brief stating that the recommendation of Judge Moulton falls short. A new permit would require a public comment period that would allow concerned citizens to comment not just on the narrow scope of the modification, but on the impacts that may be seen by opening up another large area of the Buffalo River watershed to hog waste disposal. Judge Moulton received the brief and set a hearing date for the February APC&E Commission's regular monthly meeting. However, the Chair of the Commission directed that oral arguments be heard at the upcoming Jan. 27th meeting instead. This has left very little time to notify the many supporters of the Buffalo River that their presence at the hearing is vital. The hearing will take place Friday, Jan. 27th at the ADEQ Headquarters in North Little Rock at 9:00 am. A large presence of concerned citizens will demonstrate the deep concern the public has for the protection of the river. Commissioners are expected to vote that day on whether to accept Judge Moulton's recommendation or to require that ADEQ follow their own regulations by restarting the permit process. This hearing could have a lasting impact on the future health and well-being of our country's first National River.
