Wisconsin public schools and those across the country are facing serious financial challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis, and our students need you to speak up now! Congress MUST prioritize dedicated funding to support public school students, educators, and communities in the next coronavirus relief package, not just billionaires and corporations.
NEA is issuing this national call to action to urge Congress to prioritize dedicated public school funding in the HEROES Act under consideration. Wisconsin educators and public school advocates are needed to help spread the word about the urgent need for educators to act now to stave off educator layoffs and reduced student services.
The outlook for the bill shows the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to pass the HEROES Act, but it faces a much more difficult road ahead in the U.S. Senate.
