The coronavirus may have closed school buildings and campuses, but it didn’t stop educators from working to ensure their students learn, cope, and even get fed.
It has revealed how critical public schools and educators are to our students, communities and country.
We need you to RISE with us and TAKE ACTION
The coronavirus may have closed school buildings, but it has also revealed the determination and resolve of educators to help their students. The coronavirus has also exposed a great divide. Some students, especially those who are black, brown, and poor, have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus, and unless we act, will face steeper obstacles in the future because of it.
The nation’s recovery from COVID-19 will run through our public schools, so we need to make sure we prioritize educators and students in coronavirus relief legislation.
ACTION 1: Write Congress
