AASA Letter on A-PLUS Act

 Permanent link   All Posts
AASA sent the following letter to the House of Representatives this evening urging them to vote "no" on the incorporation of the A-PLUS Act into HR5. If the House chooses to incorporate the A-PLUS Act into the Student Success Act, AASA will be unable to continue supporting HR5. The A-PLUS Act would allow a state to use federal resources for any educational purpose permitted by state law. This means that a state with a state voucher program could redirect the bulk of its federal resources away from public schools towards private, religious schools as long as the state indicates they intend for the resources to assist “disadvantaged” students.
