Sen. Scott’s Bill to Address ‘Learning Loss Crisis’ and Give Students Resources

NTD spoke to school choice advocate Walter Blanks Jr., press secretary of the American Federation for Children, on Sen. Tim Scott’s bill addressing school funding from the American Rescue Plan. Scott says that the government should fund students, not systems. He notes that 93 percent of the relief funding has gone unspent, which he says harms students. Blanks outlines the impact the pandemic had on students and lays out some of the ways Scott’s bill could help students get resources.
