Earlier this year, the President proposed to cut billions from the federal education budget and reduce services for students and schools. Now, it's Congress's turn to make decisions about how much money to invest in education in 2019, and advocates must speak out.
- Tell Congress why it’s important to you that they fully fund the programs that provide students and educators with the supports and resources they need.
- Use this action alert to help us increase funding for special education services, student support and academic enrichment programs, grants for teachers, and special education research.
Use the form below to tell your Members of Congress: Support students and teachers by investing in public education. You'll be able to customize your message on the next page.
