President Trump, and now the House too, have proposed completely eliminating all federal funding dedicated for professional development in FY18. If enacted, it would result in a loss of $2.1 billion to support educators and school leaders.
Congress needs to hear from educators about the importance of this funding for personalized, job-embedded professional development. Please send an email to your lawmakers telling them to preserve funding for the only federal K-12 program that specifically helps recruit, train, and retain effective educators.
Please encourage others to act by sharing on social media.
