AASA Recommends Against Considering the PROSPER Act

House GOP members have scheduled a meeting for tomorrow, May 23 to discuss bringing to a vote the PROSPER Act, the GOP bill to reauthorize the Higher Education Act. AASA, along with AESA, ASBO, and NREAC, sent a letter urging House leadership to refrain from taking up this partisan bill. The PROSPER Act would greatly increase the problem of educator shortages and the student loan burden on teachers.
