Decisions on education should lie with our parents, teachers and communities - not faceless and unaccountable Washington bureaucrats.

The ability to choose between a public and private education is a demonstration of the freedoms our country affords to all.  It is in our country’s best interest to promote parental choice and encourage involvement in their children’s education.

Additionally, I have supported legislation to increase state flexibility in complying with federal education rules so teachers and schools spend fewer resources complying with mandates and more time teaching.
