Right now, all over the country, parents, students, teachers and all those who work in public education are struggling to figure out how to get back to school in the middle of a public health emergency and an economic crisis. We must ensure schools have the resources to open safely during the coronavirus pandemic, and we must fund public education, including the critical academic, social and emotional services kids need. States, cities, towns and rural communities are all facing extreme budget shortages. Without state and local aid, we will experience waves of layoffs, including teachers, nurses and other essential workers, and cuts to public education and schools, among other critical services, at a time when more—not less—is needed.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the #HEROESAct in May, but Donald Trump, Betsy DeVos and the Senate Republicans refuse to act. They are making ridiculous demands that put our children’s health, safety and future at risk.
On Wednesday, September 2, parents, students, teachers, school staff and community activists will lead a Day of Action to demand President Trump and the Republican senators pass a COVID relief aid package to fund what we need to safely reopen schools, fund public education and make sure our kids get what they need!
I can’t get back to work if my kids can’t get back to school, but they need to be safe! @SenateMajLdr McConnell – do your job and #FundSafeSchools!
Why won’t Trump let the CDC track the spread of COVID in our schools? Why won’t @BetsyDeVosED even answer the phone? #DemandSafeSchools https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/coronavirus-spreading-schools-no-one-tracking-all-outbreaks-n1236964
If the Senate GOP & Trump keep blocking COVID relief aid to public schools,child care,states & communities, our schools can’t open safely. This isn’t good for anyone:
Our teachers and school staff are fighting to keep our kids and their families safe from COVID – why won’t the federal govt get them what they need? #DemandSafeSchools https://www.goodmorningamerica.com/living/story/teacher-charged-2000-resigning-covid-19-concerns-launches-72169658
Risking our students’ health is never a part of the lesson plan. Keeping anyone who’s been exposed to #COVID in the classroom puts everyone at risk: https://apnews.com/b5ab43d4b0efc89426c814732c2bb05c

The House passed the #HEROESAct to fund schools, states & communities in May. But @SenateMajLdr McConnell refuses to hold a vote on it. Why won’t McConnell give schools what they need? #DemandSafeSchools
To reopen safely, schools and child care need funds from the federal government. But Trump, DeVos & McConnell refuse, leaving states & communities in the lurch. This Wednesday, we’re going to #DemandSafeSchools and change that. http://demandsafeschoolsnow.com/
We can’t forfeit our future. We need @SenateMajLdr McConnell to pass the #HEROESAct to give schools, states & communities what they need to stay safe. #DemandSafeSchools http://demandsafeschoolsnow.com/

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the #HEROESAct in May, to invest $1 trillion in public schools, center care programs, states, and communities. But instead of passing this much-needed coronavirus relief bill, Donald Trump, Betsy DeVos and the Senate Republicans refuse to act. They are making ridiculous demands that put our children’s health, safety and future at risk. That’s why this Wednesday, September 2nd, parents, students, teachers, school staff and community activists are standing up to demand safe schools.

In order to reopen safely, our schools need resources to clean classrooms, fix ventilation systems, space out kids and teachers, and put safeguards in place to curb the spread of COVID-19. So why won’t Trump, DeVos, or McConnell give schools what they need? Join us on Wednesday, September 2nd as we stand with parents, students, teachers, school staff, and community activists to demand safe schools.
