Speak Up For Geography is a campus challenge running a public campaign to send letters to Congress in support of the bipartisan Teaching Geography is Fundamental (TGIF) Act. The Teaching Geography Is Fundamental Act (TGIF) is federal legislation which would authorize grants to universities and nonprofit organizations for programs to expand geographic literacy among American students and improve the teaching of geography at the K-12 level. The TGIF Act has the potential to change Geography education across the whole country. Geography, unlike other core academic subjects, has never had federal funding allocated to advance the education. Support the TGIF Act but joining the Speak up for Geography campaign; write a letter to congress! The TGIF Act is offering $15 million a year for the next five years. If Speak Up For Geography gets enough support then we can make TGIF Act permanent legislation!
