Bill Description: This bill would establish a loan forgiveness program for educators in rural school districts.
Does it increase government redistribution of wealth? Examples include the use of tax policy or other incentives to reward specific interest groups, businesses, politicians, or government employees with special favors or perks; transfer payments; and hiring additional government employees. Conversely, does it decrease government redistribution of wealth?
This bill would establish a new program to repay loans for educators in rural school districts with a teacher shortage. The program would pay teachers $3,000 for every year of schooling completed up to $12,000. These educators would be expected to teach subjects in disciplines as needed in those districts. Districts would receive funding for the program based on economic need.
This bill favors isolated rural school districts with teacher shortages and certain academic disciplines over urban and other districts without shortages. (-1)
