Education

Education is a central component to keeping America's economy the best in the world. The education of our children is the first step to strengthening the middle class and becoming more competitive around the world.

John applauds the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act; however, he feels the federal government has underfunded this program forcing states to increase property taxes in order to meet federal government standards. Furthermore, John feels that the No Child Left Behind Act focuses too much on standardized testing.

As someone who went to college on student loans, John is working hard to make college more affordable for all families. John supports the expansion of the new GI Bill for the 21st Century, efforts to lower interest rates on student loans, and increases in financial aid to help students who want to attend college afford it.
