Take Action to Protect Public Schools

Students everywhere are falling behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly millions of students with special needs and the twelve million students who lack home internet access.

Educators are deeply committed to providing students the best possible education and support during the challenging year ahead, but, with every state slashing education spending, they need the federal government’s help.

The painful truth is this: without federal funding, public schools will have to cut teachers and staff at the worst possible time.

The U.S. House of Representatives just passed a fourth COVID-19 relief package with too little dedicated K-12 education funding to prevent layoffs and ensure digital learning access for all students.

The U.S. Senate needs to act as quickly as possible and do more, which is why your involvement now is so important.

With just one click, you can request that U.S. Senate leaders and your U.S. Senators pass a next COVID-19 relief package with the $200 billion in Education Stabilization funding needed to prevent layoffs and the $4 billion through the E-Rate program needed to ensure all students can learn from home.

Next school year is fast approaching. Educators need our help to do their very best for students. Please act now.
