“Open doors for our children that unleash their talents and passions to prepare them for the best career possible”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) voted to put students first. The conference report for the Every Student Succeeds Act (S.1177) passed the House with strong bipartisan support, 359-64. McMorris Rodgers released the following statement:

“Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education. Today, we finally sent a replacement for No Child Left Behind to the President’s desk that will open doors for our children that unleash their talents and passions to prepare them for the best future possible.

“America is the land of opportunity. This is a country where no matter where you come from, no matter your walk of life, you can make your dreams come true. And often it starts with an education from great teachers at great schools. The bill we passed puts students first and rolls back broken bureaucratic mandates.

“We’re empowering State and local leaders to make the best decisions for students in their communities, rather than one-size-fits-all programs from Washington D.C.”
