ACTION ALERT: Urge Co-sponsorship of the IDEA Full Funding Act
In late June, JFNA issued an action alert to encourage community action in support of the IDEA Full Funding Act (H.R. 551). This bipartisan bill, which AJFCA also supports, would ensure that the federal government fulfills the promise it made to cover 40% of the cost of educating students with disabilities when it passed the IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) in 1975. To date, this promise has never been fulfilled. Click here to learn more about the legislation and how you can encourage your member of Congress to support it.
