Senate OKs The College Access and Opportunity Act

Ender spotted a Short Blurb in the Tucson Citizen that says A Senate committee has given its OK to a program that forgives educational loans to some people who work in areas where they are most needed.

The College Access and Opportunity Act forgives up to $5,000 in school loans for emergency workers who serve for five consecutive years in low-income spots designated "areas of national need" by the Secretary of Education.

Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., this week successfully amended the bill to have educational loans forgiven for highly qualified teachers, librarians, bilingual teachers and child welfare workers.
