Advocating for School Funding with an Equity Lens

What do families know about school funding? What areas do they feel are adequately or inadequately funded? And what are the implications of this for PTA leaders’ work advocating for all children? National PTA partnered with council PTAs and talked with more than 150 parents to answer these questions and more. Join us for a presentation of our findings and to hear directly from PTA leaders, about their experiences advocating on issues related to school funding.
