The future of our nation rests on the education of the next generation, and Congress has an obligation to ensure state and local communities are well-equipped to meet the needs of their students. One-size fits all federal rules and mandates hinder our communities’ ability to meet their specific needs, and I am committed to restoring state and local control of education policy. Reducing federal intrusion into state and local decision-making will empower the educators and administrators who know the needs of their students best.
