Biden’s American Jobs Plan ‘reimagines our schools,’ says Weingarten

The American Jobs Plan, introduced March 31 by President Joe Biden, is “a down payment on our woefully underinvested infrastructure” that also “reimagines our schools and communities well into the 21st century,” said AFT Randi Weingarten in a press release.

“From $100 billion toward K-12 public school infrastructure to $12 billion for community colleges to upgrade their technology and infrastructure to $45 billion to replace all lead pipes and service lines in this country,” Weingarten added, “this plan makes a down payment on our woefully underinvested infrastructure.”
