Empowered By

The Education Trust promotes high academic achievement for all students at all levels—pre-kindergarten through college.

About the Petition

We believe education is an economic imperative that should be addressed by reining in college costs, giving students a solid foundation to build their careers. The time to act is now! Sign the petition to send a message to the President as he tours the country in an effort to make college affordable.

We stand for making real reforms to shake up the way we pay for higher education because college should be affordable for every American. We agree with your statement:

"If we want America to lead in the 21st century, nothing is more important than giving everyone the best education possible—from the day they start preschool to the day they start their career."

Education is an economic imperative that should be addressed by reining in college costs, providing value for American families and preparing students with a solid education to succeed in their careers. We can’t afford to have another generation drowning in student debt, so we urge you to take action now.
