Seven National Education Organizations Urge DeVos to Revise Equitable Services Guidance

AASA joined six other national education organizations, representing school district leaders and educators, in a letter to Secretary DeVos urging her to revise the recently released equitable services guidance for the CARES Act.

AASA is concerned that the equitable services guidance is inequitable and generates dollars for wealthy students in private schools at the direct expense of Title I-eligible students in public schools, is in conflict with the historical pillars of equitable services, and is inconsistent with the underlying language of both the CARES Act and ESSA 1117. Read the letter.

Groups signing the letter: 

  • AASA, The School Superintendents Association
  • American Federation of Teachers
  • Council of Great City Schools
  • National Education Association
  • National Association of Elementary School Principals
  • National Association of Secondary School Principals
  • National School Boards Association
