WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio’s amendment to the Student Success Act (H.R. 5) passed with overwhelming support. This amendment gives the small business community a seat at the table when education policy is developed at the state level. He released the following statement on its passage:

“You always hear from the teacher unions that it takes a village. If that’s true, then the entire village should be involved, including our small business leaders who will be offering our students jobs upon graduation. We need the leaders of today to impart their knowledge for tomorrow.”
