Public Education

Every child deserves an excellent education in a safe environment, and the professionals who help make that a reality deserve to be treated with dignity. Neighborhood FORWARD believes in fully funding education and supports paying teachers and other school staff a living wage. We also oppose any legal restrictions from newly implemented state laws that ban discussions of racism or discourage educators from teaching about race.
