Advocacy CTA & You

Shine a Spotlight on Public Education Needs

Education Awareness Week: What would Schools & Communities First mean for your students?

Expanded course offerings, new books and supplies, lower class sizes, modernized facilities and more dedicated educators are only a taste of what’s possible with increased public education funding generated by the Schools & Communities First (SCF) initiative. Educators know just how much $12 billion in additional funds would mean for our students, schools and community colleges, so let’s share our voices on social media as part of SCF Education Awareness Week from today through Jan. 31!

Every day this week focuses on the many ways SCF will improve the educational experience for all students. From the need for more school nurses and other student supports to visualizing a well-funded classroom to more resources for community colleges, Education Awareness Week will show the vision of the schools our students deserve through the words of the educators who support and nurture the future leaders of our state and country.
