CAP Director Testifies to House Subcommittee on “Supplement, Not Supplan” Rule

October 3, 2016

Scott Sargrad, managing director of K-12 Education Policy for the Center for American Progress, testified in front of the U.S. House Education Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education on the “supplement, not supplant” rule under ESSA. Sargrad argued this new funding provision is “another important step forward toward fulfilling the law’s intent.” He focused on the importance of ensuring all students have the same opportunities in the classroom and noted that the “supplement, not supplant” rule can fix “historical funding inequalities.”
