Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Amends title II (Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to authorize the Secretary of Education to award competitive grants to states, local educational agencies, and nonprofit organizations to provide principals who have no more than three years of experience with training that improves their capacity to increase student achievement for all children.
Authorizes the grants to be used to: (1) establish learning communities within elementary and secondary schools where principals and teachers work together regularly to analyze and improve teaching and learning, (2) develop quality mentoring programs, and (3) provide stipends to mentors who are veteran principals with demonstrated leadership skills and a successful record of increasing student achievement.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
