Tell Congress to Fund our Future by increasing appropriations for both Title I and IDEA
More than 40 years ago, Congress made a commitment—through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act—to help level the playing field and educate every child in this country, regardless of ability, neighborhood or skin color.
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, the AFT has been fixated on the health & safety of our members, communities and students; workers on the frontlines, and the economic health of our country. You can help. Click on a legislative "ask" for more information and how to take action.
