Sec. King Addresses “Supplement, Not Supplant” Regulations

August 31, 2016

In a statement accompanying the proposed rules, Secretary King said there is “much more work to do,” but the regulations are a “concrete step forward to help level the playing field and ensure compliance with the law.” King’s statement indicates that the proposed regulations could translate into $2 billion in additional state and local funding for high-poverty schools if funding is increased rather than reallocated.
