Kline Statement on President Obama's Education Speech

U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN) released the following statement on President Obama’s education speech at Kenmore Middle School:

"The president's remarks affirm the importance of fixing the nation’s broken education system.  As we develop targeted, fiscally responsible reforms, the Committee on Education and the Workforce continues to work with school officials and state and local leaders to learn about the tools they need to prepare students for the future. We need to take the time to get this right – we cannot allow an arbitrary timeline to undermine quality reforms that encourage innovation, flexibility, and parental involvement.”
