Washington's future lies in the hands of our youth…they are the next generation of technicians, small business owners, doctors and community doers. Yet, if we fail to properly provide them the tools to be competitive in today's global marketplace, we have failed. We need to return to local control where parents, teachers and administrators are united on teaching the students.

I served as ranking member of the Higher Education Committee and helped push through reforms that will allow our colleges and universities to work together more effectively.
