The issue of Education is important to our district and to my work in Congress.
Our nation’s education system is in serious need of reform. For too long, political leaders have tried to micro-manage the system from the top down. The education system should primarily be under state and local control. Students and teachers in various schools have individual needs that cannot be determined by across-the-board federal regulations. Teachers should be the ones with control over their classroom, not bureaucrats in Washington.
Our children deserve the very best education. I will work to return federal dollars to the states and provide parents and students with more options and opportunity, such as charter schools and school choice.
