  • This survey is open to all Pennsylvania teachers who currently are in a teaching role. The results will be compiled and shared with those who make education decisions for students in the Commonwealth. No information that can identify you (name, email address, etc.) will be disclosed. The Pennsylvania Teachers Advisory Committee is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is working to ensure every education decision that impacts students is informed by classroom teachers.
  • NAfME Federal Action Alert
    • NAfME launched a new campaign to ask that Congress appropriate at least $200 billion specifically for education for states to avoid drastic education budget cuts. Without this funding, music programs will be jeopardized. We are asking members to reach out to their members of Congress to request $200 billion in the next legislative relief package to backfill state education budgets.
