H.R. 601: Reinforcing Education Accountability in Development Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 601 in the House.

H.R. 601 amends the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 to provide additional congressional direction and scrutiny over U.S. assistance in developing countries for the promotion of quality basic education.

Specifically, the bill updates the legislative authority for U.S. international basic education efforts to ensure that existing resources are effectively prioritized and aligned with U.S. foreign policy and economic interests. The bill requires the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to develop a strategy to work with partner countries and organizations to promote basic education in developing countries, and designates a Senior Coordinator of U.S. International Basic Education Assistance (while simultaneously eliminating an existing, comparable position) within USAID.

The Senior Coordinator will oversee the implementation of the strategy across federal agencies, ensure coordination, and eliminate duplication and waste among ongoing efforts to promote basic education. The Senior Coordinator must report annually, on a country-by-country basis, and describe any progress made.
