CAST released the following statement after the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee introduced the College Affordability Act (H.R. 4674), which aims to improve opportunities for students from all backgrounds:

Modernizing the Higher Education Act is vital to teacher preparation and to creating greater access to college for students who face barriers to learning such as language, low-literacy and/or disability. We applaud Chairman Scott for ensuring evidence-based practices such as Universal Design for Learning and the accessibility of technology, materials and open educational resources are central to the discussion.
