With the possibility of a government shutdown looming on July 1, our children’s futures hanging in the balance. A possible shutdown would mean a tremendous hit to all schools, one that we can’t afford. Here are just a few things that you can expect if a government shutdown occurs on July 1:
Payments for Early Childhood Special and Infants and Toddlers Early Intervention will be delayed until after a shutdown is resolved
No state or federal aid will be paid to school districts, charter schools, libraries, and nonprofits for the next ? – unless these payments are determined by the courts to be critical.
We need to turn up the pressure on lawmakers so that they make a deal that includes these reforms, and make it fast.
