Sen. Harris Introduces Legislation to Double 21st CCLC Funding


This week, Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) introduced legislation that would authorize doubling the current funding for 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC), with the additional $1.3 billion targeted to summer learning programs. The Family Friendly Schools Act also establishes a new pilot program separate from 21st CCLC, which would create 500 “Family Friendly Schools” that align the school day with the workday to better support working families and disseminate the lessons learned from these model schools to communities throughout the nation.
