Invest in Public Education

It’s time for Congress to invest in the children who are the future of America.

Take Action

Urge your senators and representative to support the largest possible increases in education funding.

After passing a short-term funding patch, Congress must finish its work with a comprehensive FY2023 funding bill that prioritizes education to ensure equal opportunity—particularly in Black, brown and rural communities. 

Due to years of budget caps, education programs receive $7 billion less in annual appropriations than they received a decade ago (after adjusting for inflation). House and Senate bills from the majority would nearly return the federal investment to 2011 levels.  

In particular, we support increasing investments in schools with high poverty rates through Title I funding, in children with disabilities through IDEA, in full-service community schools, and in career and technical education.
