Chairman John Kline and Senior Democratic Member Bobby Scott have led the process in the House to develop legislation that will positively affect the educational outcomes of our nation’s 50 million public school students, the performance of our more than 13,000 public school districts, and the success of both our communities and our nation.  We urge your support for the passage of the “Every Student Succeeds Act.”
