This Act will still need to be reconciled with the House’s version, Student Success Act.
Due to the work involved not simply to amend a bill but to bring two distinct bills into one cohesive legislation the president will sign gives every indication the process will be arduous. To complicate matters neither bill in its current form appeals to the president, according the White House Press Secretary, because of the lack of accountability over the needs of disadvantaged children.
