Education reform advocates and Democrats in Congress are pushing a new effort to overhaul America’s education system, but it could face significant hurdles and could ultimately be doomed to fail.
A bipartisan effort to rewrite education law that Trump has championed has been gaining traction in recent months, with the aim of giving states more control over how to provide free and reduced-price private and parochial schools.
The bipartisan group, the American Education Reform and Reinvestment Act, has been working on a bipartisan bill since October, but the effort has been in flux, with some lawmakers pushing to move the bill forward while others said it would not pass.
The bill has also been criticized by some for its heavy reliance on federal funds, with critics calling it a return to the kind of federal control the U.S. used to wield over education that was stripped away under the Obama administration.
“I believe it is the duty of the U,S.
Senate to act to restore the rule of law and to ensure that every child has access to an education,” said Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), the bill’s main sponsor, in a statement.
The White House has been supportive of the effort, saying in October that it is “essential” that the bipartisan bill be approved and signed into law.
But Trump has also made it clear he wants the law rewritten in a way that would help him retain power in Congress.
“The American people are tired of losing their schools to unaccountable bureaucrats,” Trump said in October.
“The American public is tired of having schools run like factories, with no accountability or accountability to parents.”
But Democrats are warning that the effort could fail to pass, arguing that the new bill is too far-reaching and does not go far enough.
The bill, which has not yet been officially introduced, would grant states more power to create and administer public schools and allow districts to opt out of providing education to students from low-income families, according to a statement from Sen. Patrick Leahy (D, VT).
Leahy and several other Democratic senators said the bill could be a major driver of higher education costs, especially for students in disadvantaged areas.
“We need to ensure access to the highest-quality education for all students,” Leahy said.
“I believe this bill would be an important step in that direction.”
While the bipartisan effort has received bipartisan support, there are significant disagreements among lawmakers on how to move forward, as well as what the bill would actually accomplish.
Republican senators on the committee that is drafting the bill, the Committee on Education and the Workforce, said that they were optimistic that they could overcome the major hurdles posed by the bill by focusing on the most important aspects.
“We believe that this bill is the best hope for a bipartisan approach to reform of education,” Leahys said in a press release.
“As we begin our work, I hope we will have enough support to move this legislation forward, but I know that we must be careful not to overreach.”
But while some lawmakers say the bill is a “good start,” the bill faces significant hurdles in its path to the White House.
The legislation, which was introduced in the Senate Judiciary Committee, would create a national pilot program for the development of a new system of “affordable, quality, quality private and public school vouchers.”
The pilot program would initially allow students from all 50 states to participate in the voucher program, with more than $50 million set aside for states.
The pilot would also allow students in low-performing areas to enroll in a voucher program at a state-run charter school.
The White House would be able to allocate additional funds to support charter schools and other educational options in low and moderate-income communities.
The voucher program would be offered in states where the cost of tuition is $5,000 or less per year, according the White, who is also the chair of the subcommittee that is developing the legislation.
States that offer vouchers through the program would receive federal funds to cover the cost and a set amount of public money would be used to help low- and moderate income students to attend a charter school, the White said.
The National Education Association, which represents teachers, students and school administrators, applauded the bipartisan legislation.
“Our members support the idea of ensuring that the federal government’s money is not being used for things that don’t make a difference, like charter schools or vouchers for low- to moderate- and middle-income students,” said Paul Pogue, a senior vice president at the National Education Assn.

The push to change the U’s education laws began under the Bush administration, but was reversed under the current Republican administration.
The U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has called on Congress to overturn the changes.
The effort has garnered bipartisan support in the U of S, but is also facing resistance from Democrats.
