Take Action

Urge your representatives in Congress to support the Rebuild America’s Schools Act of 2023

America has 50,000 school buildings that are more than 50 years old, with outmoded HVAC systems that leave students sweltering when it’s warm and freezing when it’s cold. Roofs leak, rooms flood, pest and vermin infestation is widespread, and asbestos floor tiles make the air toxic.

NEA supports the Rebuild America’s Schools Act. This bill would create a $100 billion grant program and $30 billion tax-credit bond program targeting high-poverty school buildings that pose health and safety risks to students and staff.
