Coalition Urges Congress to Support Family-Engagement Centers
A group of 83 state and national organizations is urging Congress to financially support family centers that were approved as part of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.
The coalition sent a June 6 letter to the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, asking that at least $10 million be given to fund Statewide Family Engagement Centers.
UPDATE: The Senate Committee on Appropriations considered the bill on Thursday, June 9. See an update about the committee's vote in Education Week's Politics K-12 blog.
