Thompson Statement Following House Passage of H.R. 5, the Student Success Act
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05), a member of the House Committee on Education & the Workforce, issued this statement following House passage of H.R. 5, the Student Success Act: “As a former school board member, I have long known that Washington’s mandates, while often well intentioned, do not benefit our children.  The Student Success Act places the states, local school boards, parents and students back in control of many aspects of elementary and secondary education.  The states have long been the true laboratories of innovation, and while the Student Success Act is not perfect, I am hopeful the Senate will follow suit and pass a bill that can be conferenced into a product that is best for our young learners.” H.R. 5 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 218-213.  For more information on the Student Success Act, click here.    ###
