Background on #STOPCutsToClassrooms Campaign

National PTA is running a nationwide campaign—from July 7 to September 29—to raise public awareness that federal education funding—accounting for only 2% of the federal budget—is an inadequate investment for our children.

We will need every state PTA, local unit and PTA member to help to make this initiative a success. You are critical to stopping cuts to classrooms and making sure funding for public education is more than 2% of the federal budget next year!

Here are ways that you can help with this effort

1. Sign the petition to #STOPCutsToClassrooms to make your voice heard and receive regular updates on the campaign, additional ways to take action and next steps in the funding process.
