Led by the Center for American Progress, these comments respond to a proposed Department of Education study on the uses of federal education funds by districts and schools. Although supportive of the study in general, the authors of this comment letter recommend some changes to increase the breadth of information collected and to revise the framing around the idea of flexibility in federal programs. For example, they recommend that the racial and ethnic makeup of schools and districts, the proportion of students who are English learners, and the proportion of disabled students be used as factors to evaluate the distribution of federal education funds.
