Titled, ironically, the “Setting New Priorities In Education Spending Act,” it was introduced by Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-CA., chairman of the subcommitee that oversees preK-12 policy, and praised by Rep. John Kline, R-MN, chairman of the House Education & The Workforce Committee. Check out the blog post for an extensive breakdown of the programs and categories via the link indicated above, or hereOr read the self-serving Republican-produced Summary here.
