Duncan Praises Release from Education Law

Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) applauded the U.S. Department of Education Friday for releasing Tennessee from the No Child Left Behind law, saying the move will free East Tennessee teachers from an unnecessary, burdensome, and ineffective federal mandate. “This law was a tremendous over-reach by the federal government to address failed school systems in some of our Nation’s biggest cities, and it was definitely not needed in the schools of East Tennessee,” Duncan said.The Department of Education granted Tennessee and nine other states a waiver from the education ...

Duncan's trove includes White House souvenirs

John J. "Jimmy" Duncan Jr. looks to the past as he works on the country's future whether he's at home in Farragut or in his Knoxville or Washington, D.C., congressional offices.

Congressman Duncan's Press Release In Response to the National Parks Action Fund Scoring
Last Friday the News-Sentinel published a front-page story reporting that an extremely partisan organization had given me an F on votes regarding national parks. In fact, this organization, a so-called National Parks Action Fund, is so partisan that it gave "F" scores to 236 out of 244 Republicans in the U.S. House. On the other side it gave an "A" score to almost all the Democrats in the House—172 out of 188. While many groups rate the votes of members of Congress, almost no others are so obviously partisan and one-sided. This Parks Fund was set up just this past May with the goal of influencing the Congressional elections in favor of the Democratic Party. The National Parks have always, until now, been above politics and have been supported by both Democrats and Republicans. It will not help the national parks if they are seen as an arm of one of our two major political parties while fighting the other. This Action Fund rated only 11 votes out of over 1,000 that have been cast in t
Congressman Duncan's Statement on Scores Given to Congress by the National Parks Action Fund
The National Parks Action Fund is closely affiliated with and in fact was organized by the National Parks Conservation Association. The NPCA is really the parent organization to the National Parks Action Fund; and in fact, the head of the NPCA was at the press conference announcing formation of the National Parks Action Fund. The National Parks Conservation Association, like the Trump Foundation, is a tax-exempt foundation which pays no taxes. While I am sure the NPCA has probably done enough to comply with the letter of the law, they certainly have violated the spirit of the law which prohibits partisan political activities by tax-exempt organizations. To show you how highly partisan they have become, they rated almost every Democrat in the House with an “A” and almost every Republican with an “F.” In fact, 172 out of 188 Democrats got “A’s” and none got “F’s,” while 236 out of 244 Republicans got “F’s.” The National Parks Action Fund cherry-picked only 11 ou
