NSBA Statement Calling for Federal Support for Public Schools

Anna Maria Chávez, Executive Director & CEO National School Boards Association issued a statement calling for federal support of public schools. “The need has never been more crucial for the federal government to renew its investment in public schools and provide dedicated funding for public K-12 education so that school districts will have the resources they need to address the revenue shortfalls and new expenses. Investing in neighborhood public schools is the best thing the federal government can do right now to support schoolchildren and the future of our nation. That support is needed right now.”
