WASHINGTON, D.C. | February 9, 2012
In a speech at the American Enterprise Institute this morning, House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN) announced two new pieces of legislation that represent the next chapter in House Republican efforts to reform K-12 education.
Watch Chairman Kline’s remarks and a brief Q&A session on the proposals below:
“What we’re trying to do is make sure our kids have the best chance to succeed [and] get the best education possible; involve parents more [by] giving them more options, more choices, more say, [and] more input; more involvement and control at the local level; and a much smaller federal footprint. That’s what we think we’ve done in this legislation.”
