Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement upon the House of Representatives’ passage of H.R. 5, the Student Success Act which she cosponsored. The legislation reforms and reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act“North Carolina teachers, parents and administrators – not Washington bureaucrats – should be in charge of making education decisions in our state.”  Foxx also said, “By scaling back Washington’s one-size-fits-all micromanagement of classrooms, this legislation takes positive steps toward ensuring local educators have the flexibility required to meet the diverse needs of their students.” The Student Success Act is a long-term solution that will prevent future federal overreach into elementary and secondary education, promote effective teachers in the classroom, provide parents a stronger voice in education and begin to restore local control.
