Education: Higher Education Act Reauthorization Introduced in House

On October 15, Representative Bobby Scott (D-VA) introduced the College Affordability Act (H.R.4674). This bill provides federal funding to states that provide free community college education, increases Pell grants, and makes various improvements to student loan programs, among other things. Additionally, it contains a provision requiring colleges to accept an individualized education plan or a 504 plan as evidence of a disability when a student is seeking accommodations. Learn more from the Committee on Education and Labor website. The Arc supports this legislation.
