The Committee for Education Funding (CEF), of which NAESP is a member, has launched a campaign to stop the looming massive proposed funding cuts to education.
Unless Congress acts to stop them, a projected 9.1 percent cut to all federal education programs (excluding Pell Grants)—the largest cuts ever to federal education investments—will start in January 2013. You can take action now by signing this CEF petition that will be sent to your federal elected officials.
For more information, see these talking points from CEF on the across-the-board cuts, which in budget terms is known as sequestration, or peruse data on the effects of these cuts in every state, compiled by IDEA Money Watch. Read past NAESP coverage of these looming cuts here.
