Congressman Brady Earns A grade on NEA’s legislative report Card

Feb 16, 2017 Issues: Education

 

PHILADELPHIA – Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) has earned an A grade on the National Education Association’s Legislative Report Card for the 114th Congress which assesses votes and other relevant legislative actions from January  2015 through December 2016.. The Report Card tracks individual members of Congress overall support  for public education, students and educators, with each member receiving a letter grade of A through F.

Brady said he is proud to have earned the A grade, because he believes that quality education is the key to American success. “As a nation of mostly immigrants it’s important to understand that as America opened its arms to struggling, often non-literate and non-English speakers, the availability of public education provided the opportunity for these immigrant families to thrive.”

Brady added, “In spite of the political polarization of Congress I will continue to support students, teachers, administrators and all education professionals to ensure that America provides the very best public education for all, regardless of race or class.”
