Sen. Cruz Introduces the Coronavirus Emergency Education Grants Act
by Ted Cruz on August 10, 2020 at 11:24 AM
Ahead of the 2020-2021 school year, I introduced the Coronavirus Emergency Education Grants Act, legislation designed to empower all families with the resources needed to provide for their children's public, private, or homeschool education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The legislation also includes key policies of my Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act, supporting students and families by providing a one-time grant to scholarship organizations and a tax credit for individuals and businesses who contribute to these organizations.
Upon introducing the legislation, I said:
The challenges parents are facing right now are enormous. Given that public schools may not reopen this fall - families need real options to continue their children's education. This bill will provide families with the resources needed to support their children's education - including tuition, instructional materials, tutoring, and education therapies for students with disabilities.
