The NEA is trying to prioritize our schools for COVID-19 aid.  Please write your senators and let them know how you feel. From the NEA’s website.

The Senate is negotiating its next coronavirus aid package right now. We need to make our voices heard so that our students and educators are prioritized and get the funding they need for the next school year.

We are asking for:

  • At least $175 billion to help public schools reopen safely and equitably (regardless of if instruction is online, in-person, or a hybrid);
  • No conditions on reopening to access funds;
  • No vouchers or carveouts for private schools; and
  • No liability shields.
