Every Child Achieves Act
In April 2015, the Senate HELP Committee began marking up a bipartisan bill, The Every Child Achieves Act. When the bill was initially presented, it included PE as a core subject, but eliminated the PEP program, which is the only source of dedicated federal funding for PE.
Sen. Baldwin offered an amendment in Committee to restore the PEP program, which was accepted without objection. The bill passed the Committee with a 22-0 vote; however, full Senate consideration is uncertain at this point. With PEP back in and PE as a core subject, NCPPA supports the Every Child Achieves Act.
