Grothman Talks Wishlist For Education Spending Bill

(Glenbeulah) Congressman Glenn Grothman says he would like to see a couple things included in an education spending bill that the House is considering this session. The federal lawmaker serves on the House’s Education and Workforce Committee.

One of the items he would like to see considered is more of a push urging students to consider a technical college or skills-based education after high school. He says a tradition four-year college education does not always lead to a job afterwards.

Grothman would also like to see a provision included in the bill, or attached as an amendment, allowing guidance counselors or student advisors to tell a student when they are borrowing more money than they need for their education. He feels that could do something to ward off a financial crisis after a student graduates.
