strengthen early learning programs to better prepare children for success in school; ensure that all students have equitable access to a high-quality, well-rounded education that prepares them to succeed in college and a career; continue efforts to make higher education more affordable and to improve access and success for all students; provide all teachers with the support they need to ensure student success, including by creating a national Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Master Teacher Corps; and support states and local educational agencies to ensure that schools have safe and successful learning conditions.

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.
