|Just last week, we found out that our high school students are currently graduating at an all-time high, and last year, our younger students posted the highest scores ever recorded in both math and reading.|
That's great news! But ensuring our children get the most from their education in today's ever-evolving economy remains one of our most important responsibilities. It's also a major part of my vision for a stronger middle class, which I laid out in the State of the Union last month.
That's why I'm making the replacement of No Child Left Behind a priority. We need a better education plan -- one that cuts standardized testing to a bare minimum, invests in our preschools, and gives every kid in every corner of our country a fair shot.
I'm calling on Congress to pass a law that makes this vision of a brighter tomorrow for our sons and daughters a reality. If you agree with me, then go ahead and let them know right now by adding your name next to mine.
This plan is just common sense, and it deserves a vote in the House and Senate. But Republicans on Capitol Hill have their own ideas, and without support from people like you, it will be pretty darn tough to have a meaningful debate about any of this.
I'm confident that we can work together and get this done, but I could use your help today to show Republicans that Democrats are committed to making this level of progress permanent. So sign your name today, and tell Congress to pass an education bill that works for middle-class families:
Thanks for standing with me today. I'll be in touch again soon.
