It’s time for Congress to invest in the children who are the future of America. The funding levels for FY2022 approved by the House chart a new course in public education, the backbone of our nation’s human infrastructure.

Key elements of the bill include a $19.5 billion increase for Title I programs, a $400 increase in the maximum Pell Grant, a $3.1 billion boost for special education, and $443 million for full-service community schools—far above the $30 million provided this year.
