H.R.4914: STRIVE Act

Author's Summary:  To better support our early childhood educators and elementary school and secondary school teachers, and for other purposes.

IB Summary:  "The STRIVE ACT acknowledges the often overlooked and unmatched dedication and commitment of countless educators,” said New Jersey Education Association President Marie Blistan. “When we support our educators today, we support our children and our collective future. It's time to reduce the burden of student loans on educators, mandate funding for teacher-focused grants, and increase tax deduction for educators who spend their own money on our children's future. The STRIVE ACT will empower educators to do what they do best: educate.” Read more about it here - https://norcross.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/norcross-booker-pascrell-announce-major-legislation-address-teacher
