Education and Opportunity

America’s students are in a global race for jobs, and a high quality education is the doorway to those opportunities. Yet the Federal Education Complex, a taxpayer funded multi-billion dollar operation, has yielded sub-optimal results for many of our students over the last 20 years. It’s imperative that we take active steps to transform our education system by introducing innovation, technology and diversified career tracks into our classrooms so that we can develop a workforce equipped to step into the economic opportunities on the horizon.  

The goal is clear: the best education possible for all children. The question, then, is who is best suited to lead the charge? After multiple decades of underachievement out of Washington, it’s time to empower local leadership.

As your Representative  I will work with my colleagues in Washington to partner with  parents, teachers, principals and local school boards to improve academic achievement in our country.

My job is to represent you, and that works best when you and I are interacting. That’s why I prioritize open communication. For example, folks in Ascension Parish had the opportunity to attend a Town Hall in Prairieville this week. We filmed a “postgame interview” so those of you who couldn’t make it can still be a part of the action. Watch the short video below, and 'like' my Facebook page to continue the conversation
