One of the most important gifts we can give to our children and grandchildren is a quality education. Education is the key that unlocks the door to opportunity and is critical in preparing the next generation for an increasingly competitive global economy.  With so much at stake in Virginia and across the country, Congressman Goodlatte will continue working in Congress to pass legislation to enable our state and local communities to better target their resources to best serve the needs of their students.  Congressman Goodlatte appreciates the input from teachers, principals, local and state administrators, and parents as we work to further strengthen our education system.
