Local Representative says Legislation will give local schools flexibility

alt text

(Best Syndication News) Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon (R-CA) tells Best Syndication that the “The State and Local Funding Flexibility Act” will provide states and local school districts flexibility in how federal education funds are used.

McKeon says that every state, school and classroom is different. “It has been proven times over that our national education system works best when choice and flexibility are granted to local administrators, teachers, and parents as well,” he said.

“Funding can be pulled from specified programs to be used for things such as school improvement grants, aid for the disadvantaged, reading first, math and science partnerships, innovation programs, and rural and low-income programs.”

He hopes his bill will help eliminate waste. McKeon, a senior member of the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce, says this has been a proven model for rural school districts and he believes it can be scalable for large communities.
