If the basic needs of students aren't met, they could have the chance to sue the Government of Guam. Empowering students with this right is Senator Bob Klitzkie's Bill 1, the Every Student is Entitled to an Adequate Education Act.

The bill recently received a do pass vote out of Senator Larry Kasperbauer's Legislative Committee on Education. "Working with Senator Klitzkie, we've made some modifications to the bill that resulted in the entire committee that was here on-island; ten members to sign in favor of reporting the bill out," Kasperbauer told KUAM News.

The bill is slated for next session's agenda.
