Education Resources

(Rep. Fudge with participants from the 2019 Congressional Art Competition) 

From K-12 and beyond, I want to provide you with the tools necessary to access a quality education. This section highlights the policies and programs from the federal government, non-profit organizations, and other resources to get every student on the road toward academic success.


 
The Department of Education is the agency within the federal government charged with distributing money to states through grants in order to improve student achievement, school facilities, teacher quality, and more. The Department of Education, ensures that schools are in compliance with Civil Rights laws in regards to race, class, gender, and orientation. Further, the Department of Education is the leader in collecting data on America’s schools, which is then used to craft policies in Congress to promote achievement for all students.
