Congress to hear arguments on Obama administration's proposed education spending rule
from The Washington Post
Members of Congress will have a chance to hear arguments for and against the Obama administration's proposal for how school districts spend billions of dollars meant to educate poor children, perhaps the most hotly contested education issue in Washington since Congress passed a federal education law late last year. The Education Department and its allies in the civil rights movement say that the rules will ensure that children in high-poverty schools get the federal aid they are due, while a wide range of opponents have argued that the administration has overreached its authority with a proposal that would wreak havoc on classrooms nationwide.
