The report that HR 5 to seriously limit the authority of the U.D. Department of Education, restructure Title I funding for low income area schools, and eliminate the Common Core standards among other measures, has not been pulled as previously announced by Rep. Amash.
Two amendments were offered:
HR 5 (#43) Thompson (MS). HR 5 will not go into effect until it can be assured there will be no adverse affect on low income, minority, and English learner students.
HR 5 (#44) Scott (Va). The amendment would replace # 43 and call for robust funding, replace No Child Left Behind, and maintain civil rights and equity.
