Deeply saddened and praying for all of the #Manchester victims and their families.
As a former teacher, I understand that every child in America deserves access to a quality education. During my time in Congress, I have made it a priority to see that states and localities are given the flexibility and tools needed to prepare students for success in the global economy.
I believe strongly that decisions on how to best educate our children should be made by parents, teachers, and local communities. That way, our education resources can be focused on helping children get the support they need, instead of being consumed complying with costly mandates from Washington.
