Advocacy on the Federal Budget

On behalf of the nation’s Pre-K-8 principals, NAESP advocates for increased federal investments in education to support programs that benefit schools. While the U.S. Department of Education’s budget comprises only 2% of all federal expenditures, federal education funds have a significant impact on the ability of schools to meet the learning needs of students. NAESP's advocacy leads to increasing funding for comprehensive recruitment, training and professional development for principals.
