Sign the petition to protect our schools!

Last month, as kids across the country were finishing another school year and getting ready for their summer vacations, President Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos released a budget that would be devastating for our public education system – with $9.2 billion in cuts that would hurt students, parents and teachers from kindergarten to college.

Tell Trump and DeVos: Protect our public schools!

The Trump-DeVos education budget would completely eliminate billions of dollars for teacher training, class-size reduction and critical after-school programs. It would force low-income college students to pay thousands more in interest on student loans. And it would divert more and more money to private and charter schools instead of giving more resources and support to the students and schools that need it most.

Our public school system exists to ensure that every child in America can get a high-quality education regardless of where they live or how much money their parents make. We have a lot more work to do to achieve that goal – but the Trump-Devos budget abandons it entirely, and that’s why we need to stop it in its tracks.

Add your name: Tell Trump and DeVos that you refuse to abandon the promise of high-quality public education!
