Among the many challenges America faces today is keeping pace with the need for a high-quality educated workforce. Our children must be prepared for the jobs of the future, which means demanding high expectations and accountability in education and rewarding results.

I am proud to have led the charge in the state legislature for education initiatives that give parents and students the choices they need to be better preprared for getting good jobs of the future. Schools throughout the Third District, including Eden Prairie, where each of my four daughters go to school, are leading the state with these innovations.

Keeping States, Parents and Educators in Charge

We need accountability in education that includes measuring results. I will work to make significant changes to the No Child Left Behind Act and provide states and local schools with the flexibility they need to improve student and teacher performance.
