Cole supports Student Success Act
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after he voted in favor of H.R. 5, the Student Success Act. This legislation reforms the federal government’s excessive role in K-12 education, allowing states to have more control of their schools and encouraging greater involvement of parents and education leaders to ensure quality education for students.
“Undoubtedly, Americans in all 50 states understand that education is one of the most important building blocks for an individual’s success,” said Cole. “Especially in the earliest years of a person’s life, access to quality learning or lack thereof directly impacts development and potential. By limiting the federal government’s excessive role in education, returning greater control to states and keeping parents and educational leaders involved in the system, I believe we can set more students up for success.”
