Invitation: Inside the PROSPER Act

Rachelle Peterson

In a few weeks, the PROSPER Act, which would reauthorize and substantially reform the Higher Education Act, will likely come before the House of Representatives for a vote. The National Association of Scholars believes this bill represents the best chance for education reform in decades.

This Friday, June 22, NAS will host a conference call providing an overview of the reforms the bill would make. We will also release an updated toolkit for NAS members and other concerned citizens who would like to tell their Representatives to support the PROSPER Act.

Join our conference call on Friday, June 22, at 3:00 PM Eastern to learn more about the PROSPER Act and how you can be involved.

What: Freedom to Learn: An Updated Toolkit on the PROSPER Act

When: Friday, June 22, 3:00 PM Eastern Time

Where: Call in by phone. Call-in Number: 1-903-230-0168. Conference Code: 3534925.
