NEA Fiscal Toolkit for States for State Legislative Sessions

The purpose of the fiscal toolkit is to provide state affiliate leaders and staff with data and analysis to help build the case for both protecting and enhancing state funding of public education during economic uncertainty.
Published: 01/19/2023

The toolkit contains national data and analysis primarily, but also links to state-specific information. Each topic includes talking points to guide state advocacy efforts for the 2023 legislative sessions. Topics include inflation, potential recession, and state fiscal conditions as they relate to the funding of public education. The talking points have been curated to reflect the best sources available that are credible and appropriately aligned in supporting public education. The toolkit is a living document and will be updated periodically in response to changing circumstances.
Questions may be directed to Tom Zembar ([email protected]) on behalf of NEA’s Economic Impact Team. The team is comprised of staff from NEA Research, Collective Bargaining & Member Advocacy, Campaigns & Elections, Education Policy & Practice, and Strategy.
