I’ve served on the House Education and Workforce Committee since coming to Congress. When traveling around East Tennessee I heard from many hardworking teachers who were frustrated, overworked and often felt underappreciated. One of the top complaints I heard was that Common Core was making it nearly impossible for educators to do their jobs. I’m proud to say that I was on the committee that led the fight to stop Common Core. I believe every East Tennessean deserves access to a quality education, and I will continue to work to get Washington out of the classroom and return decision-making power to local officials.
