House Republicans: 'We must look past outdated education models'

House Speaker Chris Benge and several members of his Republican caucus announced their 2009 agenda today. According to a House press release,
House Republicans have made funding a priority in our education system, but money alone will not help our children compete globally for jobs. Our children are a diverse population and all learn in many different ways. We must look past outdated education models and reform our system to include a blend of educational opportunities tied with accountability in a safe and orderly environment. Choice, local control, and high standards in our school systems are critical to ensuring that our children are prepared to compete in today's marketplace.
