Education


The American education system is broken. We must put parents in charge of their children’s education – not the government.

Our students continue to lag behind their peers worldwide, even though we spend more than $620 billion on K-12 education per year – that’s more than nearly every other major country in the world. Giving states and local school districts more control and allowing competition where possible, is our best option for improving a failed model. By allowing the free-market and local experts to lead, schools will be more accountable and free to prosper. We must not overregulate our school system with a top-down approach from the Department of Education.

In Congress, I’ve supported legislation to rein in federal control over education and give power back to parents, states, and local education leaders.
