Issue Position: Improving Our Children's Education
John believes that every child deserves a shot at a high quality education and has authored legislation to back it up.
John is a strong voice for parent choice and local control of our education dollars. On his watch as Chairman of the House Education & the Workforce Committee, Congress passed legislation bringing real reform and accountability to our schools. In fact, the No Child Left Behind Act was signed into law at Hamilton High School, a symbol of John's commitment to improving education for our children.
Boehner has also played a key role in crafting legislation providing more Americans access to higher education and job training programs. His College Access & Opportunity Act would improve the Pell Grant program by allowing students to receive Pell Grant aid year-round and repeal the federal rule that needlessly limits the amount of Pell Grant aid a student attending a very low-cost school may receive.
