HERITAGE ACTION POSITION: YES

Vote Description

The Senate will likely vote on an amendment offered by Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) to the Every Child Achieves Act of 2015 (S. 1177).The amendment, known as A-PLUS, would give the states the ability to escape No Child Left Behind’s prescriptive programmatic requirements, consolidate their federal education funds and use them for any lawful education purpose they deem beneficial.

Heritage Action Position

At its core, A-PLUS delivers on the promise of “restoring state and local control over the 10 percent of education funding financed by the federal government,” moving dollars out of the hands of federal bureaucrats and political appointees and into the hands of those closer to the students. Now is the time for Congress to restore federalism in education, empower parents and students instead of bureaucrats and unions, and remove archaic obstacles that have prevented true opportunity for all.
