"Think about every problem, every challenge, we face. The solution to each starts with education.” - President George H.W. Bush #PresidentsDay2019

Let’s remember this #PresidentsDay to take a moment to reflect on the contributions of great American leaders who built and shaped our nation.

Completely agree, @GovRonDesantis. "If the taxpayer is paying for education, it’s public education. We have parents who are lining up for a tax credit scholarship. They would not do that if the program was not succeeding."

On the one-year anniversary of the unthinkable murders at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, I join all Americans in remembering the lives cut too short in Parkland and in all other senseless acts of school violence across the country.

No, this isn’t a CVS receipt. The #FAFSA is too long. That’s why I’m working with @IvankaTrump and @SenDougJones to cut the number of questions in the FAFSA application from 108 to no more than 25. #MakingCollegeWorthIt

Our new myStudentAid app makes filling out the #FAFSA easier than ever. But a simplified FAFSA would be a great upgrade! Need Congress to get this done as @usedgov continues to modernize FSA & better serve students. iOS: https://apple.co/2xOn9wv  Android: http://bit.ly/2SjisEk

Quoted @usedgov

The Dec 2019 Federal Commission on School Safety report highlighted the "substantial misunderstanding [that] remains at the local level" concerning #FERPA. To that end, we’ve worked hard to provide answers to 37 of the most commonly asked FERPA questions. https://studentprivacy.ed.gov/resources/school-resource-officers-school-law-enforcement-units-and-ferpa …

FERPA is an area where widespread confusion remains, and this clarification will give local school leaders and law enforcement the tools they need to protect student privacy while ensuring the health and safety of students and others in the school community.

Education has always been the key to opportunity in America. But, the way we speak about #CTE is inherently classist. More from @virginiafoxx's op-ed on why it’s important to change how we think and speak about education. #CareerTechEd https://www.wsj.com/articles/stop-calling-it-vocational-training-11546298568 …

"Whether an individual acquires a skill credential, a bachelor’s degree, a postgraduate degree or anything in between, it’s all education." This is a must-read op-ed by @virginiafoxx on the importance of all forms of education and ending the stigma around #CTE.

Quoted @LtGovTimGriffin

My definition of #schoolchoice is simple: Parents, not the government, should choose where and how their children are educated. Read more from my @ArkansasOnline op-ed: https://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2019/feb/03/give-families-freedom-to-choose-2019020/ … #arpx #ARLeg

“Improving education through school choice should not be a partisan issue. We should all be able to agree that every child deserves a quality education. Our kids come first--before politics, before unions, and before party label.” I could not agree more, @LtGovTimGriffin.

"The brain-dead debate between charter and neighborhood schools should be replaced with a focus on quality over mediocrity." I agree, @ChicagosMayor. “Labels” don’t matter, quality does.

“Too many American students are far too limited by the current education ‘system’ that assigns them to a school building based solely on where they live. That means their family income largely dictates their education options.” - @BetsyDeVosED on tonight’s #SOTU

More than 20,000 Chinese-American veterans fought to protect our freedom during WWII, yet for too long their heroism has gone unrecognized. Proud to join @WhiteHouseAAPI in honoring these members of the Greatest Generation for their service to our country.
