Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick, Chrissy Houlahan and Mike Quigley introduced the Global Learning Loss Assessment Act.
This legislation aims to address education loss. School closures stemming from this global health crisis have affected more than 1 billion students around the world, and, according to a recent study by Save the Children, about 10 million students are in danger of permanently dropping out of school due to rising poverty related to the pandemic.
U.S. Sens. John Boozman and Ben Cardin have introduced companion legislation in the Senate.
