Statement on the President's FY23 Budget Request for the U.S. Department of Education

“As we take steps to accelerate learning through the pandemic and beyond, our communities continue to rely on the skilled, steadfast leadership of our nation’s principals and other education leaders. We are pleased that President Biden’s FY23 budget request recognizes the critical role school leaders play in creating schools where teachers and students thrive. We especially value funding for programs focused on diversifying our educator workforce along with the inclusion of $40 million for the School Leader Recruitment and Support Program. We look forward to working with Congress to ensure programs that strengthen and diversify education leadership receive robust funding in the final FY2023 spending deal.”
