The U.S. House of Representatives' Education and the Workforce Committee will probably soon be considering a bill addressing issues in the Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
This will be a critical point in our effort to eliminate the unfair and discriminatory effect of "number weighting" in the formula for distributing federal funds for the education of disadvantaged children.
The ACE Act will be offered as an amendment in committee and the committee leadership has promised it will be put to a vote.
