Much for education in Biden's Schools in State of the Union speech

President Joe Biden emphasized schools' role in supporting student mental health during his State of the Union address in Washington on February 7. Rising rates of anxiety and depression among children and teens should be a top concern for the nation, he asserted. The president used his speech to call for more funding to support preschool for three- and four-year-olds and provide two years of community college for free for all students, to call on Congress to restore an expansion of the Child Tax Credit that was in effect for a year under the American Rescue Plan and provided support to families struggling to afford childcare during the pandemic with monthly payments of $300 per child younger than six and $250 for each older child, and to champion the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. That law is the most comprehensive gun safety legislation in 30 years and provided $1bn for schools to support student mental health and well-being. The president also called for bipartisan support from Congress to ban online advertising targeted at young people and children and enact strong protections for youth and children's privacy, health, and safety online. In advance of Biden's speech, the White House announced a number of steps to help support children's mental health. The White House directed the U.S. Department of Education to establish a $280m grant program to increase the number of mental health care professionals in high-need districts and strengthen the school-based mental health professional pipeline. The Education Department and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will issue guidance and propose a rule to “remove red tape” so schools can more easily provide health care to students and bill Medicaid. The health and human services department will also launch a Children and Youth Resilience Prize Challenge, awarding $750,000 to a pilot program that promotes resilience among young people.
