Funding geography education is truly fundamental to good learning. Why contact Congress now?  Because this is a critical period when our representatives are considering whether to co-sponsor the Teaching Geography is Fundamental act, and Congress actually does pay attention to constituent contacts.  This bill would finally make dedicated federal funding available for K-12 professional development in geography education.  Nationwide, this bill would help state Alliances to continue funding your State Geography Bees, summer institutes, weekend
