Topic:  The Family Friendly Schools Act will create a first-of-its-kind pilot program to give schools resources to stay open during the entire work day throughout the school year and to invest over $1 billion in enriching summer learning programs – all without forcing teachers to work longer hours or for less pay. Introduced by Sen. Kamala Harris (D)-California and presidential candidate during her campaign, grants will be provided to 500 “family friendly schools” for before school, after school, and summer enrichment.  Mel and Tash will break down the Act providing pros and cons.
