Education Budgets Are Being Finalized!

At this time of year, education budgets in state and local communities across America are being finalized for the upcoming 2024-25 school year. We encourage everyone to contact your local school district office and urge them to promote curriculums that will prepare America’s youth for the jobs now available and for job opportunities in the future.

We all know that reading; writing and math skills are very important, but we also need to be focused more on the jobs needed to replace people that are retiring from the workforce, as well as the new type of job opportunities being created every day. In America’s high schools, it should be mandated that every student be offered classes that would place them on the path to a long-term career. Students should be encouraged to consider professions like medicine, education, law, and business. They should also be offered hands on classes for the trades such as construction, plumbing, heating and air conditioning, welding, manufacturing and many others. All of these careers are very important to American businesses and the future of America’s economy.

As school boards meet to finalize their budgets, school superintendents need to hear directly from YOU, the parents and taxpayers who want a more realistic look at how students are being prepared for the ever growing workforce in the United States. When you call, let them know you want your tax dollars to be used for an education that will offer your children career opportunities that will benefit them for a lifetime. Let them know that you feel graduates should be ready to apply for one or several jobs upon graduation from high school.

Kindly spread the word to your family and friends and call your local school superintendent’s office as soon as possible. Email your suggestions to:
