Support improving higher education programs and student aid
Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), which governs federal student-aid programs, federal aid to colleges, oversight of teacher preparation programs, and much more, is long overdue. In October 2019, the House Education and Labor Committee passed the College Affordability Act (H.R. 4674), which would help educate and prepare teachers, improve loan forgiveness programs for educators, and take other crucial steps to strengthen post-secondary education and make it accessible to more students. But the Senate has yet to act.
Email your representatives and urge them to reinvest in colleges and universities by supporting the College Affordability Act.
Email your senators and urge them to act now to overhaul the Higher Education Act.
