Every weekday, 56 million children and adults set foot in a public school: 1 in 6 of all Americans. But half of these schools need repairs, especially in urban and rural areas. Incredibly, the federal government provides NO support for this vital part of the country’s infrastructure. We can change this. But only with your help.
Opportunity: Federal Infrastructure Investment Will Help Close the Gap
Americans strongly support investing more in public infrastructure. President Trump and many members of Congress have made infrastructure a top legislative priority. A one-time federal investment of $100 billion over 10 years for locally controlled public schools will benefit children, families, and communities across America.
Benefits for Every Community and State
Better schools. Thousands of local construction jobs in every state. Broadband for rural communities. Lower maintenance and operations costs. Stronger local economies. Resilient public facilities ready to serve in time of disasters. All while retaining local control of public schools.
