Encouraging Greater Federal Investment in Education

Chiefs strongly believe that education is the single most important investment in the future of individuals and our nation. The President, Secretary Duncan, and leaders of Congress have all made similar statements. Even in the face of tough economic times we need an honest national dialogue about investment in education. To promote excellence and equity for all students, we need increased support for key formula programs, like Title I and IDEA, as well as in new competitive grants that push education reform forward. Chiefs are now and will continue to be partners in reform. CCSSO calls for national leadership to help ensure that we all do whatever it takes to ensure that all children achieve high standards and to do so we need additional investments in assessments, data systems, teacher quality and school improvement.
