The Department of Education
Transcript of The Department of Education
Following Mr. President's State of the Union speech, we have released an interactive College Score Card. Using this, parents and students can use an interactive tool that allows them to find a college that caters to their individual needs, including location, size, campus setting, and degree and major programs. Each card includes key pieces of data about a college: costs, graduation rate, loan default rate, average amount borrowed, and employment. These will be updated periodically. We have fitted this tool, thank yous to the many comments and advice on the prototype, and following many conversations with leaders of higher education institutions, college counselors, students and parents – the Department updated this tool to better meet families’ needs and provide them with the information they found most valuable in making decisions about where to enroll.
Our concerns concern many americans who were or are now being affected by these violent shootings and the high costs of attending a college. Our concerns are with the lives of the students and their safety, and making sure they recieve a good and affordable education from the United States of America. What Our are Current Concerns? We are meeting these concerns with diligence and responsibility. We are working on new projects to preserve the safety of America's educational system. We have created many ways to help students with financial troubles, such as Pell Grants. These are important steps towards making progress with our concerns and troubles. We hope to create new programs in the future that can help college students pay off their loans, as well as reduce the number of shootings in school areas.
"These grants provide support to students, educators and communities impacted by these senseless shootings," U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan quotes. "Tragic events damage students and entire communities, and disrupt teaching and learning. These funds will support Chicago schools as they continue to recover from these acts of violence and work to make the community safer so all children can live free of fear."
We're trying to help school systems and communities that are still damaged from Hurricane Sandy. We have awarded three-million dollars to Project SERV, mainly to the states of Connecticut ($250,000), New Jersey ($1.25 million), New York ($500,000) and New York City ($1 million) to assist with recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Within 75 days after receiving their funds, the grantees will submit reports to the Department describing the basis for distributing the funds and the activities that are planned.
We are helping to mend the devastation that these violent crimes and natural disasters have caused. How Are Our Concerns Being Met? Nothing Cut:

•Adult Education State Grants : 455,000,000 Our Budget In the 1950's, more federal aid became available for education due to political and social changes. The Soviet Union's successful launch of Sputnik resulted in improved education in the sciences. In the 1960's, President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty led to improvements in education for the poor at all school levels. In the 1970's, many educational efforts were aimed at helping racial minorities, individuals with disabilities, women, and people of non-English background. In October 1979, Congress passed Public Law 96-88 which created the current Department of Education. This Act was called The Department of Education Organization Act. Since that time, it has been transferred and reassigned to many different departments or agencies. Currently, The Department of Education comes under the authority of The Department of Health, and the Department of Welfare. Later, the Department of Education was established as a cabinet-level agency in 1981. The
Education We at the Education Department, are working daily to improve the level of quality children recieve when in an educational environment. We help the President execute and implement his policies towards education, as well as laws enacted by Congress. The Education department strives to support students and promote students achievements, fostering educational excellence and equal access. When our department was created in 1979, Congress declared these purposes:
To strengthen the Federal commitment to ensuring access to equal educational opportunity for every individual; to supplement and complement the efforts of States, the local school systems and other agencies of the States, the private sector, public and private educational institutions, public and private nonprofit educational research institutions, community-based organizations, parents, and students to improve the quality of education;
to encourage the increased involvement of the public, parents, and students in Federal education programs;
to promote improvements in the quality and usefulness of education through federally supported research, evaluation, and sharing of information. We follow these standards along with many more. These are the standards in which we follow in order to provide a safe, healthy, and nurtured educational environment. The Department of Education’s history begins in 1867, when President Andrew Jackson signed legislation that created the first Department of Education. During this time period, the Department of Education was a non-cabinet level that lasted less than year. During that year, the Department of Education gathered several statistics about the nations schools. There was widespread fear going on during this time that the Department would gain too much power over local schools, so the Department of Education was changed to the Office of Education. Our History Our History The Department of Education regulates exactly what, when and how children are being educated within the public school system. It is immensely important to secure the integrity and promising future for the next generation who will become leaders, businessmen and influential people. The U.S. Department of Education works to further improve the education system and to provide educators with information that will make them into better teachers. A few programs that are currently being worked on include Race to the Top, Early Learning, Ready to Learn Television, and the Title I Program.
The Race to the Top Program Supports states' efforts to create comprehensive plans to build coordinated early learning and development systems and improve programs so that more children, especially those with high needs, will enter kindergarten ready to succeed.
The Early Learning Program’s goal is to improve the health, social-emotional, and outcomes for all children from birth through 3rd grade, so that all children, particularly those with high needs, are on track for graduating from high school - and career-ready.
The Ready to Learn Television Program goal is to is to promote early learning and school readiness, with a particular interest in reaching low-income children.
Lastly, the Title I Program Supports school and community-based preschool and K-3rd grade programs. Tasks of the Department of Education, Current Programs, and how these programs help Education Doing away with the U.S. Department of Education, which currently serves 56 million students, would force officials to determine whether to downsize, reassign or eliminate an array of federally-funded programs. These programs would include Title 1, which distributes funds to schools and districts with high numbers of low-income students; Pell Grants for low-income college students; and Head Start, an early childhood education program for lower-income children. Our department is an important asset in the structure of American Society. Education plays a major role in the future of students and their performance in the future. Conclusion 1/3 Cut :

Without our department, the children of America will have a bleak future - students will be unable to function in a job or in a higher educational system once they graduate from high school. Students in high-poverty schools will not recieve a viable education.
Education is a necessity, and important part of America, and deeply affects everyone in the country. Ed.gov. N.p., n.d. Web. 20 Feb. 2013. <http://www2.ed.gov/about/overview/budget/budget12/summary/edlite-section2a.html#collpathways>.
