There's no one more important to a student's education than a great teacher. Great teachers need to be supported, should be better compensated and should be treated as professionals. The current system force fits educators into a box that gives them little opportunity for growth.

No student in America should ever be denied the equal opportunity to a great education. Our efforts are not rooted in a partisan ideology or designed to benefit any one group. They are focused on the students, parents and teachers I meet each week – and millions more like them.

The aim of the Every Student Succeeds Act was to return power to those closest to students – parents and teachers. The overwhelming bipartisan message was clear: states and local communities – not Washington – are best positioned to improve education for every student in America.
