I hope you will join with me and other concerned citizens in a new partnership — Alabama Unites for Education. Together, we are building a strong grassroots coalition of parents, teachers, students, alumni, business leaders and other supporters who share our commitment to building and sustaining a first-class education system in our state.
State leaders are under intense pressure to divert money away from the Education Trust Fund to fund other state services. Any further cuts to the Education Trust Fund will significantly impact both K-12 and higher education. Such moves would be shortsighted and fail to recognize the great return our state receives from dollars that are invested in education.
You understand the important value of education. Please take a minute now to become a member of Alabama Unites for Education by filling out the sign up form on this page. There is no fee to join, and we will keep you updated about how we can work together for the betterment of our state.
