In case you missed it in EdWeek, 50CAN joined forces with nearly 50 education groups nationwide to urge Senate leaders to set aside 25 percent of Title II-A funds (a.k.a. Effective Teachers and Leaders State Grants) for competitive grants. Right now only 1.5 percent of those grants are competitive.
This is the first day of class for 50CAN U. Every Thursday Gretchen Guffy, 50CAN U dean of policy & research, and Karen Silverman, 50CAN U dean of advocacy, will take turns checking in and discussing what the 50CAN team is currently reading and learning to become better advocates and education policy experts.
