Title II Day of Action


Join NAESP on Wednesday, May 15, for a Title II Day of Action. Title II-A is the only federal funding stream dedicated to the preparation, training, and support of teachers and principals. It’s critical for Members of Congress to hear directly from you why this funding matters, how it helps you in your job, and why it's critical for student success. In addition to professional development, Title II-A enables districts and states to build principal pipelines and pathways into the profession, and to boost innovative programs that provide clinical-based preparation for principal candidates. 

The Trump Administration has proposed to eliminate Title II-A funding in the FY20 Budget, while the House Appropriations Committee has advanced legislation to increase funding for the program by $500 million.

Do you have a minute to make your voice heard and tell Congress #WhyTitleIIMatters?

  • Principal churn hurts students. When principals aren't supported, they might leave the profession. One-half of principals leave their schools after only 3 years. Yet, principals should be in place for at least 5 years to have a meaningful impact. #WhyTitleIIMatters #TitleIIFacts
