Policy Recommendations for President Biden
As the nation continues to reel from the COVID-19 pandemic and Congress remains unable to remedy the financial instability experienced by families, localities, and states, AASA urges the next Administration to prioritize investing wisely in the future
of our nation through federal programs and policies supporting the nation’s 50 million K-12 public school students.
A comprehensive and significant investment in the education of our public school students has never been more important to reducing the racial and socio-economic inequities plaguing American society today and providing a pathway for social and economic mobility.
Recommendation 1: Support Public Schools and the 90% of K-12 Students They Educate
Recommendation 2: Repeal Recent Regulations that Harm Public School Students and District Operations
Recommendation 3: Ensure Continuous and Direct Engagement Between Local Education Officials and the U.S. Department of Education
