    As the school year ends, students and their parents are worried about what they will find when the school doors open in the fall. Unless Congress acts now, students will find fewer school staff – teachers, librarians, counselors, reading specialists, and education support professionals – to give them the individual attention so essential to academic success. They will not be able to make up the ground lost due to this crisis.

    I have urged Congress to act now to include education jobs funding as part of the emergency supplemental appropriations legislation. Thousands of teachers are send ing the same message to their legislators.

    Surely Monday was the last day of school for many teachers. However, we still must fight to save our public schools 24/7. Every child is guaranteed a free public education under the Law of our great nation. This ensures democratization in a free society.
