Signup: National Working Group on Public Education

The National Working Group on Public Education is a coalition of state legislative leaders committed to advancing public education and defending against policies that undermine the needs of students, families, and communities.

The members of the Working Group believe:

  • The institution of public education has a unique importance for individuals, communities, and American society.
  • Strong public schools dedicated to teaching all children are America’s best hope for the future.
  • In order to provide quality schools for all children in all communities using public revenues, government must play a leading role in adequately funding, regulating, and managing public schools.
  • Public schools can be strengthened by implementing positive reforms in all school districts and adhering to time-tested principles such as being open to all children, free for all families, welcoming of diversity, adequately funded, governed by locally elected boards, and providing equal opportunities to learn for students.
