Speak out, churches

May 4, 2013 in Featured Question of the Week, Pre-K Funding Cuts, Question of the Week, Spotlight Answers by Val Handwerker

When federal cutbacks from the sequester reduced air traffic controllers, there was no suggestion that congregations should help cover the funding for restoring the full supply of controllers. Instead, there was such an uproar because of travelers’ delays, congress restored the full funding. Would that there would be just a strong uproar about these pre-K cuts as there were about flight delays! It’s a case of justice for the most vulnerable, and it is the voice of congregations which should aid in making sure full funding for pre-K education is restored.
