Did you know that Federal funding for public education programs has remained at 2% of the federal budget for decades, despite the increase in public school enrollment and the rising cost of education resources and services.
This disparity between funding levels and actual costs means that the federal government has essentially enacted cuts to classrooms. National PTA is running a nationwide campaign—from July 7 to September 29—to raise public awareness that current levels of federal education funding are an inadequate investment in our children.
We need YOU to help to make this initiative a success—Every state PTA, local unit and PTA member is critical to stopping cuts to classrooms!
Here’s how to participate in the STOP Cuts to Classrooms campaign:
- Sign the petition to #STOPCutsToClassrooms to make your voice heard and receive regular updates on the campaign.
- Visit National PTA’s #STOPCutsToClassrooms webpage to learn more about federal funding for public education and view the campaign toolkit for more info.
