The education of our nation’s children is the foundation for our success. While I agree that we must make sure our teachers have the tools to adequately provide quality education, we need to make sure they are not burdened by disconnected bureaucratic mandates. Our federal policies should offer limited standards for schools, not detailed policy directives. Basic education policies are best decided by those in our local communities.
During my three terms as mayor of Rogers, I saw firsthand how our communities are challenged to adequately prepare our students for their futures. By handing down one-size-fits-all directives, we reduce the ability of our kids to think critically and solve the problems our nation is facing. As your representative in Congress, I will work to strike the balance between federal involvement and local control to ensure our children are receiving the best possible education.
