Federal support for education and workforce training should continue, and in negotiations for the coming year’s budget Congress should ensure funding to make the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act successful, according to a letter from the National Governors Association. The letter, addressed to the chairs and ranking members of the Appropriations Subcommittees on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education in the House and Senate, marks the first time since 2007 that governors have collectively advocated regarding federal funding levels.The governors also requested that Congress work to ensure proper funding is continued for state grants under the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, Preschool Development Grants and state grants available due to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
