New Education Subcommittee Allows Rep. Susan Davis to Focus on Higher Education
Washington, DC - As Congress gets ready to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, Congresswoman Susan Davis joined the subcommittee of the House Education and Workforce Committee which will focus on the issue.
As the 109th Congress began, Davis joined the 21st Century Competitiveness Subcommittee leaving the Select Education Subcommittee.
"As Congress prepares to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, this subcommittee assignment will give me an excellent opportunity to address the needs for adequate loan funding and the many details of academic control," Davis said. "I look forward to working with my colleagues, Republican and Democrat, on the committee."
Higher Education institutions with over 125,000 students and staff reside in Davis's district making her a perfect fit for the Committee.
Davis has sponsored a number of bills to improve the nation's education system, including encouraging teachers to receive National Board certification and using the latest science in Even Start training.
She recently joined with Rep. Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX) to provide federal grants to create literacy programs for adolescents.
Davis retained her seat on the Education Reform Subcommittee.
