As parents and educators we know every child deserves a world-class education in our public schools. But our children are paying the price for more than 20 years of underfunding and bad policy decisions by Florida lawmakers. This must change. Florida can do better. United, we are demanding that lawmakers fund our future.

For five weeks last fall, FEA leaders and staff hit the road in a big red bus to spread the word about the needs of Florida’s students, public schools and all the people essential to providing kids with a great education. The Fund Our Future Bus Tour criss-crossed the state, making stops from Pensacola to the Florida Keys.
Reach out to your Florida state representatives and senators. Let them know you care about our community public schools and the need to fund our future.
Local leaders and opinion makers read your newspaper’s opinion section. Use FEA’s online Letter to the Editor tool to amplify your voice by writing a short letter to the editor.
Florida’s public education funding problem is decades old. Now educators are calling for a “Decade of Progress” for Florida’s students and our neighborhood public schools.
Fund Our Future is a campaign of the Florida Education Association (FEA), the state’s largest association of professional employees and the largest labor union in the Southeast, with more than 145,000 members.
FEA represents Pre-K-12 teachers, education staff professionals, higher education faculty, graduate assistants, and both aspiring and retired educators. Together with parents and community leaders, we are building a movement to fund our future.
