The House will be voting tonight on the spending bill for the U.S. Department of Education and the bill containing the Hurricane Katrina relief spending. Both will be voted on without amendment. The Senate did vote a 1% across the board cut last night, thus reducing spending for all education programs. The overall impact on NCLB is estimated by NEA to be $1 billion. Funding for schools and children impacted by Hurricane Katrina includes monies for displaced students attending both private and public schools as well as school re-start funds for private and public schools.
