The future of America lies in our youth. From enacting sound legislation to speaking to young people from across Georgia and our great Nation, I have made education a top priority throughout my career.
I believe there is a need for a well rounded education and accountability. The challenge we face is finding a balance between testing accountability and curriculum viability.
I firmly believe that states have a better understanding of the demographics, unique challenges, and rate of improvement for individual school systems. When it comes to a child's education, decisions should be left to those who know best how to make them: parents, local school districts, and states. This is why I cosponsored H.R. 1539, the Academic Partnerships Lead Us to Success (A-PLUS) Act. This bill would give power back to states allowing them to implement intiatives that each state individually develops to best meet the unique needs of their particular students.
