Literacy Education Advocacy

Help Make a Difference in Education Policy - Previous Revision

NCTE's Action Alerts ask members to contact policymakers to request their support for legislation affecting literacy education.

Ask Your Senator to Cosponsor S. 929, the LEARN Act
Please Contact Your Senators!

Senator Patty Murray (WA) has reintroduced the Literacy Education for All, Results for the Nation (LEARN; S. 929) Act along with cosponsors Mark Begich (AK), Sherrod Brown (OH), AL Franken (MN), Jack Reed (RI), and Bernie Sanders (VT). This legislation is a comprehensive, pre- K through grade 12 bill that features writing and reading and offers alignment from early childhood across all grade levels and across all subject areas with support for state literacy plans and money to districts for their self-defined needs.

Please take a moment to write your Senators asking them to cosponsor S. 929.


See the Senate version of the legislation, S. 929.
Read a summary of the legislation.
