The article presents information on Kelley Bill before the U.S. House. The Kelley bill provides for $1.6 billion in federal school construction grants spread over four years. At least 50,000 new classrooms will be needed each year simply to keep pace with increasing enrollment. It may also lead to higher teacher salaries. School districts aided under the bill can spend money on teachers that flow goes to pay off bonds. The Fund for the Advancement of Education has indicated how colossal an effort will be necessary to attract the number of new teachers.
