Be it therefore


Resolved, that the National Council of Teachers of English communicate regularly to the President of the United States, the Secretary of Education, and other elected and appointed federal officials the crucial issues in English language arts education;

     that NCTE offer its services in addressing these issues; and

     that NCTE assist its state and local affiliate organizations in communicating their concerns regularly to state and local officials and in offering services to improve English language arts education at the state and local levels.
