Bill Bennett Introduces New Group: Conservative Leader For Educators

July 28, 2016

Former Secretary of Education Bill Bennett authored an opinion piece on Fox News last week announcing Conservative Leaders for Education, a new group that is calling on conservatives to raise their voices in the debate around education reform and ESSA. Bennett explains how this group, made up of conservative state legislators and education officials, “is committed to advocating principled policy as states begin to implement ESSA” and will serve others in the GOP as a “clearinghouse of best practices, where educators, policymakers and the public can share ideas and contribute to a constructive policy discussion.” Conservative Leaders for Education also submitted comments on the Dept. of Education proposed accountability rules, which can be found here.
