Education Action Week

August 19-23 is Education Action Week
This 5-day event is all about advocating for education!

Members of Congress will be heading to their home districts during August and many of the education policy issues affecting the communities we serve remain unresolved. The major federal education bill, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), is overdue for reauthorization. Policymakers are expected to consider ESEA and other education appropriations and authorization bills when Congress comes back in session in September and October.  Now is the time for us to tell federal officials that education needs to be front and center for our nation.

Join us in rallying online to support education!
