Ask Your Senator to Cosponsor the Educator Preparation Reform Act (EPRA)!
As energy pics up to reauthorize the Higher Education Act (HEA), AACTE is hard at work advocating for the Educator Preparation Reform Act (EPRA). This measure reauthorizes Title II of HEA, which addresses educator preparation.
Our current focus is on securing a Republican to cosponsor EPRA in the U.S. Senate. The bill currently only has Democratic cosponsors, and in order for EPRA to be part of the conversation moving forward, it needs to have bipartisan support - meaning both Democrat and Republican cosponsors.
This is a focused, targeted campaign right now, so if you're unable to participate then please stay tuned for future opportunities. The more constituents who weigh in the better - numbers matter here (as always).
Your constituent voice can make a difference. We hope you can take a couple of minutes and use your advocacy skills on behalf of the profession.
