Lee Terry believes education secures the future success of children from every economic and social background in all walks of life. States, local school districts, teachers and parents know best how to meet the individual needs of children. During his service as your Representative, Lee Terry has voted to:

  • provide states with greater flexibility and control over federal education dollars
  • ensure 95 percent of federal education dollars go to the classroom
  • increase the annual contribution limit for Education Savings Accounts to $2,000
  • boost federal education funding by $6.9 billion over the past three years
  • allow college students to reconsolidate their student loans more than once

Congressman Terry also voted for the No Child Left Behind Act to link federal education funds to school performance for the first time in our nation’s history. While improvements should be made to ease the regulatory burden on schools, this legislation’s goals of accountability must not be compromised. Lee Terry is determined to ensure that children learn the skills they need to succeed in school and life. Lee Terry’s efforts were recently recognized as he was awarded the “Champion for Children” Award for his work in supporting funds for school districts.
