More on Education
This week, Congressman TJ Cox introduced H.R. 3647, the Impact Aid and Infrastructure Act, with Congressman Don Young of Alaska. This legislation would invest in facilities of federally impacted school districts by providing a one-time infusion of funds into the Impact Aid construction program to address the significant backlog of facility needs at federally impacted school districts. This bill ensures that federally impacted school districts have access to critical infrastructure funding they need to provide a quality education for all of their students.
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Rep. TJ Cox (CA-21), joined Rep. Doanld Norcross (NJ-01), Rep. Seth Moulton (MA-06), Rep. Angie Craig (MN-02) and Rep. Andy Kim (NJ-03) in reintroducing the Remedial Education Improvement Act to make remedial/developmental education programs more effective, fair and less expensive. Although necessary, developmental education programs make college take longer and therefore more costly to students and their family. The Remedial Education Act improves or develops programs based on five reform models which have a proven track record of success.
