The Daily Yonder, 4/8/24

It is in this environment that we decided to launch Southerners for Fair School Funding, with the goal of making the case for improved public school funding in the region. It is the single most important investment our country can make, and that is truer than ever in our rural communities, where stagnant wages and persistent poverty can only be addressed through a strong and well-funded public education system. Our state leaders in the South have an obligation to help all children thrive, and we are encouraged by the movement across rural communities that is demanding that their schools are funded and supported. Their voices are more necessary than ever.
