Featured Action: Pregnant and Parenting Students Need a Senate Champion

The Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act is already pending in the House (H.R. 1845), but we need a Senator to step up to the plate and introduce it in the Senate. Will one of your Senators be the champion we are looking for?

Take action today by asking your Senators to become a lead sponsor of the Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act. Pregnant and parenting students have a lot on the line. They need to know that their Senators are supporting them.

The Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act (PPSAE) would provide a framework and resources to states and school districts to ensure that pregnant and parenting students have equal access to educational opportunities. It would enable states to create a plan for the education of pregnant and parenting students, provide professional development and technical assistance to school districts, coordinate services with other state agencies, and disseminate information, among other activities.

Dear [Decision Maker],

I strongly urge you to introduce the Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education (PPSAE) Act (currently pending in the House as H.R. 1845) in the Senate, to help improve graduation rates among secondary school students who are expecting or parenting children.


Again, please improve the educational outcomes and future economic security of pregnant and parenting students -- and their children -- by championing the Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act.
