SCHAUMBURG, IL – Congressman Krishnamoorthi has been named one of the newest “Moneyball for Government” All-Stars for his work as a lead sponsor of the bipartisan College Transparency Act (CTA).
The CTA would amend the existing college reporting system by establishing a privacy-protected postsecondary data system at the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), which would collect and report on student outcomes such as enrollment, completion, and post-college success to help prospective students determine which programs of study efficiently support their career aspirations. The College Transparency Act has broad bipartisan, bicameral support. It has been cosponsored by 234 representatives (151 Democrats and 83 Republicans), and it has 37 cosponsors in the Senate (20 Republicans and 17 Democrats). The legislation also has the support of over 200 civil rights, youth, business, veterans, education, and workforce development organizations.
“I am honored to be recognized by Moneyball for Government for fighting for improved outcomes for American families, an improved education system and workforce through providing data to make informed decisions,” Congressman Krishnamoorthi said. “Preparing students of all ages for the economy of the future is critical to growing and strengthening the middle class and I’m glad to work with these leading advocates to do it.”
