NEA Study Finds Investment in U.S. Public Schools Lagging as Education Needs Rise
Washington, D.C. - Despite the vital importance of education to Americans, critical investments in U.S. public schools remain stagnant, according to a state-by-state report released today by the National Education Association (NEA). The report, titled (PDF, 1M, 127 pages), paints a difficult funding picture for public education nationwide. Despite rising enrollments and a growing need for qualified teachers in many areas of the country, the average expenditure per student and the average salary of a public school teacher for the 2001-2002 school year increased only slightly over the previous year. Over the last 10 years, teacher salaries have remained flat, growing just 2.4 percent during that time period, or approximately 0.2 percent per year when the cost of living is factored in. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia saw real declines in average teacher salaries over the years 1991-92 to 2001-02, adjusted for inflation. Those with average salaries declining 5 percent or more: Alaska (-13.6%), Connecticut (-11%), Vermont (-9%), Wisconsin (-6.4%), New York (-6.3%), New Hampshire (-6.1%), Nevada (-6%), Kansas (-5.8%), and the District of Columbia (-5.3%) (Chart C-14). The study shows that the federal government's share of the public education dollar was 7.5% in 2001-2002 not enough to cover the cost of federally mandated education programs. State and local governments will need a larger share from the federal government in order to put the federal education mandates in place without sacrificing other programs. By failing to fully finance the new No Child Left Behind Act, which was enacted in 2002, the federal government will be undermining state and local governments' ability to find ways to attract qualified teachers into joining and staying in the profession, modernize existing schools and build new ones, and provide students with the programs, materials and books they need to meet the high standards envisioned by the new law.

initiative promoting the importance of early education and care for wisconsin children. Child care organizations, state agencies, education programs, and many
Research shows that public investments in education and development are more than seven times greater during the school-aged years ($5,410 per child) than during the early learning years ($740 per child). The years between birth and age 5 are the most important for a child's brain growth and development. During this period children are adjusting and becoming more familiar with the world around them. The actual growth of the brain occurs at this time and a foundation for learning has begun. It is during this time that a child's education and quality of care has the most impact.

2. State Brain Team
As Governor McCallum stated: “Scientific research demonstrates that a child's early experiences have a profound impact on growth and development, especially in the way the brain functions. A warm, nurturing environment with consistent, responsive caregivers provides the child with a foundation for a promising future. Without this, a child may be left with diminished potential. Wisconsin established the State Brain Team, a collaboration of public and private agencies dedicated to disseminating this brain research to local agencies
and organizations, and citizens throughout the state.
