Fund Our Future
You know there’s an urgent crisis in public education in Massachusetts. Our public schools and colleges are underfunded by billions of dollars a year, with deep racial and economic inequity in our K-12 public schools and students and families forced into tens of thousands of dollars in debt just to get a degree from a state school.
We know we must do better. That’s why we’ve launched the Fund Our Future campaign by filing the PROMISE Act to fund K-12 public schools and the CHERISH Act to fund public higher education.
We’re calling on the Legislature to make this major reinvestment in public education this spring – in time for local communities to include the funding in the next academic year’s budget and in time for public college students to avoid tuition and fee hikes this fall. But we need your help to send the Legislature a message.
