MediaPresident’s Proposed Budget Represents Historic Investments in Public Education System

 May 28, 2021

Bethesda, MD—The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) is pleased to see that President Biden’s proposed FY22 budget presents tremendous opportunity for our nation’s public education system and the students it serves. This historic budget proposal prioritizes addressing disparities that have existed for too long and ultimately undermine the fabric of the nation. We commend the President for requesting significant increases in both Title 1 and IDEA to improve outcomes for students with disabilities, address inequities in school funding systems, and provide historically underfunded schools with the resources they need to ensure a high-quality public education for all students.
