Meeting with Congressman Cantor

Towards the end of February, school board members and superintendents from all divisions represented in Congressman Cantor’s district (District 7) were invited to sit down and discuss education policy with the House Majority Leader.  Goochland was represented by Mrs. Hardy (D-4), Mr. Payne (D-1), and me.  We had an excellent meeting and the Congressman and his legislative team discussed their positions on Sequestration, unfunded mandates, the reauthorization of the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act, also known as No Child Left Behind), and global education rankings.  We shared the board’s position on several of these areas with our continued focus encouraging local control over educational decision-making.

On the same day, the new Rosa Parks statue was unveiled at the Capitol and we took a detour on the way to our car to grab a picture.
