Issue Position: Education

Still, the pace of reform is far too slow, especially for families and communities of modest means. Maine has been a national leader in school choice for years. Charlie will bring the Maine experience with competition with him to Congress and push for national education policy that brings the benefits of accountable education to children across the nation.
