Education – House Committee to Mark Up Higher Education Act Reauthorization Bill

The House Committee on Education and the Workforce is scheduled to mark up H.R. 4508, named the Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity through Education Reform (PROSPER) Act, on December 12. While The Arc appreciates the continuation of the Transition and Postsecondary Program for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TSPID) in the H.R. 4508, we oppose this legislation because it makes college less affordable and eliminates grants that support teacher preparation, increase accessibility for students with disabilities, support faculty who work with students with disabilities, and provide accessible materials.
