Elementary And Secondary Education Act Overhaul -- Block Grants


Walker, R-N.C., amendment that would allow states to receive federal education funds in the form of a block grant to be used for any education purpose under state law. States operating under a block grant must assess student achievement and must disseminate disaggregated student performance data. The amendment would also require that a state receiving federal education funds as a block grant must ensure that private schools receive an equitable portion of that funding.
