Every American student deserves the opportunity to receive a quality education. I believe that states and local school districts know how best to educate our children. I am supportive of efforts to replace the top-down, one-size-fits-all federal approach to education with reforms that empower local school districts, parents and teachers.

To free college students from years of debt, I support making college tuition payments fully tax deductible by allowing students who graduate with debt to deduct from their taxes the full cost of college after they leave school and become employed.
