Organizations around the country are setting today aside to have a focused conversation about education. The National Day of Action to Reclaim the Promise of Public Education comes in response to recent school closings, reduced funding, and other cuts that are affecting public education across the United States.
For the National Women’s Law Center, bringing attention to the shortfalls of the education system is important because there’s a lot at stake for at-risk girls, women and families, and their communities. Here are some important reminders why it’s important to #ReclaimPublicEd.
- Very young children need high-quality care during the critical early years. But too many parents can’t afford it.
Think about it: what will the future of our country be if public schools continue to be last in line to receive the funding and support they need? Our children are counting on us – it’s our duty to appeal to the powers that be and give every child a fair chance.
