Debt-ceiling bill forces cuts to education spending
from eSchool New
After weeks of political posturing, the agreement reached by lawmakers to raise the nation's debt ceiling contains some good news for low-income college students — and bad news for other education stakeholders. With just hours left before the national debt bumps against its cap, emergency bipartisan legislation to allow the government to borrow more money faces one final test in the Senate. Expected passage there sends the bill to President Barack Obama, averting a potentially disastrous, first-ever government default and making a down payment toward taming budget deficits.
