Bush in the U.S. The act contains provisions that would help students with disabilities to attend college, support training programs for K-12 teachers, and expand support for minority-serving institutions. Some of Congressional leaders who hailed the enactment of the legislation were Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Representative George Miller (D-Calif.).
