Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Education

Comprising roughly half of the state of Colorado, the 3rd Congressional District is one of the most diverse regions in the nation. It includes Indian reservations, farming and ranching communities, urban areas, and rural mountain towns. Each of these communities has its own unique characteristics and education needs. Because of this, I believe firmly that education matters are best handled at the local and state levels. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law on December 15, 2015. This law goes a long way towards returning the responsibility for student achievement to states, local school districts, and parents, while maintaining the standards needed to ensure the U.S. remains competitive in the global economy.
