Tell Congress to Support MSAP in the FY18 Budget!

Express your support for the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) in the FY 2018 budget. MSAP provides funds to public school districts to create, expand, or improve magnet school programs. It is the only federal grant program designed specifically to achieve the goals of school diversity and integration, and is of crucial importance to nearly 3.5 million students enrolled in approximately 4,340 magnet schools across the United States. 

Nationwide, magnet schools are routinely recognized as the most successful public schools. For instance, in the prestigious U.S. News and World Report High School Rankings, magnet schools make up 25 percent of the top 100 high schools. This speaks volumes considering they represent less than five percent of all public schools. Just as impressive, three of the top ten schools are magnets.

Hi, is the Representative's education adviser available?

I'm calling to ask the Congressman/woman to support Representative Joe Courtney's amendment that is being considered today and restores $1.2 million in funding to the Magnet Schools Assistance Program. As a magnet school educator, I see firsthand the positive impact that theme based magnet programs have on students. I think it's critical that the government continue to fund the Magnet Schools Assistance Program so that magnet schools like mine remain a strong educational option for parents to choose from. 
Thank you for taking the time to speak with me.
