Location: Washington, DC

Minnesota Congressman John Kline, Chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives approved his charter school bill, the Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act (H.R. 10) with strong bipartisan support:

"As we work to help more students access a quality education, we must support charter schools as a valuable alternative to failing public schools," Kline said. "The Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act is a bipartisan initiative that will encourage the growth of charter schools and provide a new avenue of hope for children and their families. But our work to provide more education options for students isn't done yet. I encourage my Senate colleagues to join us in supporting the charter school movement by bringing this important proposal up for a vote without delay."
