Cotton Statement on Passage of the Every Child Achieves Act
July 16, 2015
Washington, D.C.—Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on today's passage of the Every Child Achieves Act:
"I am a proud graduate of Arkansas's public schools and the son of a public-school teacher and principal. I believe in our public-school system, but I also know too many children aren't receiving the quality of education they deserve. This bill rightly provides educators and administrators with the long-term stability they need to establish better curriculums and accountability measures. And it empowers states to decide what's best for their students instead of Washington bureaucrats. Rest assured, I will continue to advocate for policies that improve education in Arkansas and across the country."
