Alexandra Marquez started this petition to Senator Charles E. Schumer and
The administration is proposing to eliminate GEAR UP programs (Gaining Early Awareness & Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) in the proposed 2020 budget. These programs are making a huge difference by helping students from low-income schools prepare for and success in postsecondary education. Programs support students and their families early in middle-school and provides them intensive academic, social, and planning support all the way through high school graduation and into postsecondary education. GEAR UP has demonstrated that when local educational and community leaders collaborate, we can see dramatic improvements in educational outcomes!

Please show your support by signing this petition to ask for the continued funding of the GEAR UP programs! A bipartisan coalition of senators are already circulating a "Dear Colleague" sign-on letter in support of GEAR UP funding in 2020. Let them know how important these programs are.
