A good education lays a strong foundation for long-term success and is one way to increase economic opportunity for Hoosiers.
I was proud to recently help the Senate pass the bipartisan Every Child Achieves Act, which would reauthorize and update the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. If enacted into law, this bill would provide resources to states and school districts to support teachers, principals and other educators and renew the 21st Century Community Learning Centers afterschool program. It also would give states more flexibility to better respond to the unique needs of their students. This way, Hoosiers, not bureaucrats in Washington, would be setting the academic standards for our children.
