Congressman Tim Ryan's Statement on the House passage of the Student Success Act

July 19, 2013
Press Release

Congressman Tim Ryan made the following statement in response to the House passage of H.R. 5, The Student Success Act:  

“With a list of opposing organizations too long to print, House Republicans have once again ventured down a lonely road—passing another bill that will never become law—this time gutting education by nearly $1 billion annually. This bill fails to provide adequate safeguards for our students and removes accountability provisions meant to ensure a quality education for every American student.

“As expected, Congressional Republicans have removed protections for collective bargaining, eliminated funding for several school initiatives, and dismantles school accountability for those children who need it the most. This is an outright partisan bill that lets our students down and devastates our entire education system. We must do better.”
