AASA Leads Coalition Letter to Congress Opposing Funding for Private Schools In Next COVID Package

AASA, which co-chairs the National Coalition for Public Education, organized a coalition letter to Congress urging House and Senate leaders to reject the GOP COVID-5 proposal that would funnel billions of dollars to private schools. Congress has already provided private schools with billions of dollars in relief funds, including for wealthy schools with high tuition, large endowments, and affluent students. Congress has already created a situation where private K-12 schools have received a disproportionately large share of federal resources when compared to public schools. Accordingly, the letter states that the next coronavirus relief legislation should support our public schools, rather than siphoning funding away from the public schools to fund private schools through direct grants or voucher programs.
