AAGT Stands in Support of NAGC

Tell Congress: Don’t Eliminate Javits Funding

AAGT is in full agreement with the National Association for Gifted Children’s (NAGC’s) statement opposing the House Appropriations Committee’s decision to eliminate all funding for the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Children Act (Javits Act) in FY2024.

While the Javits Act represents a small fraction of the federal budget, it has a significant impact on the lives of gifted and talented students across the country, including right here in Arizona.

Gifted and talented students come from all backgrounds, and we have a responsibility to ensure that they have access to the resources and support they need to succeed.

AAGT joins NAGC in calling on the U.S. Senate to reject the House Appropriations Committee’s proposal to eliminate funding for the Javits Act. Gifted and talented students deserve our support, and our country needs their talents.
