As a former educator and an employer, Rep. Holt believes it is critical that we make the necessary investments in education and sustain those investments over the long term. The strength of our community and vitality of our economy both depend on the quality of our schools. Since securing a seat in 1999 on the House Committee on Education and Labor, Rep. Holt has worked to craft comprehensive education policies that improve early childhood education, invest in teacher training, set high standards for our students, and help make college more affordable. As a senior member of the committee, Rep. Holt will take a leading role in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
