  • Defend Title II Funding in our Schools

    Despite the proven impact of principal and teacher quality on student achievement, President Trump's proposed FY 2019 budget has called for the complete elimination of Title II, Part A funds. The bipartisan 2015 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) authorized this critical funding to states for the purpose of preparing, training, recruiting, and retaining high-quality teachers, principals, assistant principals, and other school leaders.

    Title II, Part A, already suffered a $294 million cut in FY 2017, which brought the funding amount down to far below the $2.295 billion authorized under ESSA.

    President Trump is proposing eliminating a program that can aid our nation's educators in better supporting all students, but these numbers are not final. Congress is still working through the budget appropriations process. It is critical that you contact your representatives to let them know that you oppose cuts to this program and tell them to support full funding for Title II, Part A of ESSA.
