John believes that every child deserves a shot at a high quality education and has authored legislation to back it up.
On his watch as Chairman of the House Education & the Workforce Committee, Congress passed legislation bringing real reform and accountability to our schools. In fact, the No Child Left Behind Act was signed into law at Hamilton High School, a symbol of John’s commitment to improving education for our children.
John is also a strong voice for parent choice to help give our children the best opportunities to succeed. In 2011 he lead the fight to renew a successful scholarship program that allows low-income students in the District of Columbia to attend private schools of their parents’ choice. John believes the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship program will provide a successful model for similar programs in Ohio and across the country.
