Educators Respond to Covid

Hi Educator,

The road to recovery from record unemployment and lost learning will run through our public schools. But our educators and students face serious challenges ahead.

Lost state and local revenue will mean historic levels of layoffs and furloughs. Class sizes will be even larger. Educators will be even more overworked and underpaid. And students will lose out the most. Critical supports, much-needed programs, and opportunities will be unavailable to them.

We need to come together now to make sure Congress prioritizes our students, parents, and communities with their next legislative actions. 

Join me for a national tele-town hall about the work we need to do together to repair the economic damage done by the coronavirus for students, parents, and educators.

On the tele-town hall we’ll discuss what Congress needs to do to stabilize education funding, build bridges to opportunity for students and communities, and support the safety, health, and well-being of students and educators both now and when school buildings re-open.

You will learn what you can do to demand that Congress support our students, parents, and educators so that our communities and local economies can thrive.

Sign up for Thursday’s tele-town hall right now.

I hope you can join us,
