House Poised to Regulate Private Schools
The U.S. House of Representatives could vote soon on legislation governing elements of a schools disciplinary policy and practice.
The bill (HR 4247) would affect all public schools and private schools whose students or teachers benefit from any federal education program (about 80 percent of Catholic schools, for example). The measure represents an unprecedented and unwarranted degree of federal regulation of religious and independent education.

Thank you for conveying to Congress your views on this legislation and for inviting friends, family, and members of your community to do the same.
