Thank you, Congress!

Congress has passed legislation that will keep 161,000 educators in schools across the country!

Because of their vote, more than $26 billion in aid will flow to states and school districts. Our educators will now be in classrooms—rather than in unemployment lines—when the school bell rings, and our children and communities can continue to prosper.

Please take a moment to thank those who stood up for our kids and our communities. And for those who did not, tell them how their vote failed our children.

The AFT is grateful to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Reps. David Obey and George Miller for their leadership and tireless efforts on this issue in the House of Representatives, as well to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sens. Patty Murray and Tom Harkin, who championed the fight for this funding in the Senate.
