Federal Flash: Congress Considers Free Community College, But What About Dual Enrollment?


The Biden Administration continues to support vaccine and mask requirements in public schools to ensure student and educator safety, while the U.S. Department of Education began efforts to collect data on the use of recovery funds. Meanwhile, committees in the House of Representatives released their proposals for the $3.5 trillion budget bill, the Build Back Better Act, including four years of additional public education through universal pre-K for three- and four-year-olds and two years of tuition-free community college. Though these Congressional efforts to expand public education are laudable, funds for early college programs and high school to postsecondary transition efforts should be included as well, so that free community college programs do not create perverse incentives against participation in college in high school programs.
