TANF – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families

  • TANF is a block grant that provides States funds each year.

  • These funds cover benefits and services targeted at needy families.

  • Helps needy families with childcare, transportation and other things that will encourage people to find work or help them stay in work.


  • No Child Left Behind (NCLB)

  • Response by then President George Bush to educational inequalities

  • This Act requires schools within each state to reach a certain standard in basic skills if the state is to continue receive federal funding for education.

  • Hope was that grades would improve and evidence suggests that black and Hispanic performance in Maths and English has improved.


Affirmative Action

What is meant by the term Affirmative Action (A.A.)?

A.A. or ‘positive discrimination’ is the name given to a set of programs which aim to reduce inequality in education and employment.

Originally introduced to help Black Americans overcome historical disadvantage, A.A. programs today aim to help a range of disadvantaged Americans, including women and with those with disabilities, to access better education and employment.


How Does Affirmative Action Operate?

  • In educationA.A. operates by:

  • Outreach Programmes– extra tuition is provided for those students (often Black or Hispanic) from disadvantaged backgrounds.

  • Recruitment and Retention Programmes– funding is provided to assist disadvantaged groups with certain types of career e.g. in science or business management.

  • Universities– would aim to ensure their student intake reflected wider US society i.e. campuses/departments would aim to include minority groups, both genders, disabled students, etc.


The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (2012)

This acts invests heavily in education as a way both to provide jobs and lay the foundation for long-term prosperity.

  • The Act provides $77 billion for reforms to strengthen elementary and secondary education.

  • It aims to make improvements in teacher effectiveness and ensure that all schools have highly qualified teachers.
