This legislation, the Catch Up Our Kids Act, will address student learning loss due to school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic. Overwhelming studies and analyses have shown a significant amount of learning loss and Senator Cruz’s goal of this legislation is to put the power back into the hands of parents, so that they can get their children back on track.

Dear Senator Ted Cruz,
On behalf of the over 2.3 million members of AMAC – Association of Mature American Citizens, including over 198,000 members in Texas, I offer our support for the “Catch Up Our Kids Act.”
We agree with the findings laid out in your proposed legislation and share in your dismay and sadness that our children’s educations have suffered at the hands of the rampant mismanagement of the federal response to the Covid-19 pandemic, especially as it applies to education. It is critical to the future of our nation, and critical to our national security, that our children receive an education that is competitive at a global level.
Your bill, when it becomes law, will stand as a strong mitigation to the deleterious effects of the suboptimal education our students suffered during the COVID-19 school closures. This bill also takes advantage of funding already allocated to our schools such that the net increase in spending to support this effort is minimized.
Thank you, Senator Cruz, for advancing a bill that recognizes the need to ensure a good education for the future citizens and leaders of our great country. Our office stands by to support your efforts.
