Capital Hill Watch Alert

Canceling Loans to Allow School Systems to Attract Classroom Teachers Act (H.R. 5091)

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on October 1, 2002, on the Canceling Loans to Allow School Systems to Attract Classroom Teachers Act (H.R. 5091) (Full text of legislation).

For elementary and secondary school teachers in Title I schools, the bill authorizes an increase in the total loan forgiveness.  By increasing the maximum loan forgiveness from $5,000 to $17,500, this measure addresses the need to increase the number of quality teachers in our nation's classrooms. Also, providing an incentive for teachers to work in disadvantaged areas with a priority for teachers of special education, mathematics and science and teachers in local education agencies struggling to attract highly qualified teachers is H.R. 5091.

What Can You Do?

Urge your representative to SUPPORT the Canceling Loans to Allow School Systems to Attract Classroom Teachers Act (H.R. 5091).
