FIX THE EDUCATION CRISIS

  Back To Our Priorities
House bill 2387

Fund learning recovery and acceleration programs

Place tutors in schools and more paraeducators in classrooms because evidence shows that high-dosage tutoring is the most effective intervention to get students back on track in math and reading. (Filed in 2024.)

House bill 2142

Create a reading coaches grant program

Fund reading literacy coaches in elementary schools with prioritization for low-income children and kids who have fallen furthest behind their peers. (Filed in 2024.)

House bill 1044

Rebuild small-district school buildings

Create a new grant program to help school districts in economically disadvantaged areas build new schools because all children deserve access to a world-class education, regardless of income. (Filed in 2023: Passed House and Senate, but died in conference.)

House bill 1615

Provide school choice

Fund education savings accounts for students who are low-income, eligible for special education, or in persistently failing schools so all children can exercise the privilege of attending private school or homeschool, not just those who can afford it. (Filed in 2023: Did not receive a hearing.)

House bill 1373

Close encampments

Require local governments to close encampments near critical areas like schools and provide funding for clean-up and additional homelessness services.

House bill 1456

Prevent retail theft

Modify the definition of theft so that security officers can actually stop shoplifters when they conceal merchandise rather than only when they leave the store.
