Elementary and Secondary Education Act

The Senate Health Education Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee is scheduled to mark-up (vote on) the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) beginning on Wednesday, October 19.  As of now, Senator Murray (D-WA) has done a good job including libraries into the legislation; however there are still areas where there needs to be more.  There is an amendment that will be introduced during the mark-up by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) that will further address school libraries’ role in education.
Senator Michael Bennet sits on the Senate HELP committee and will be voting on this amendment when it is introduced.  Please call Senator Bennet today at 202-224-3121 and ask him to support the Whitehouse/Murray amendment on school libraries.
This legislation, if passed, will impact education policy in this country for years to come, so it is critically important that we make sure libraries are included in this bill.
