John Ashcroft on Education
Former Attorney General; Former Republican Senator (MO)
A. Our nation’s children deserve no less than a safe and secure learning environment. There are significant problems in Missouri with failing urban school districts. These districts will be greatly helped by “direct check” legislation, which sends federal education dollars directly to local school districts. There is currently a federal law that prohibits local schools from being able to remove certain students who have weapons, drugs, or assault school personnel from the classroom for an appropriate amount of time. I have introduced legislation, endorsed by the Mi ssouri School Boards Assocation, Missouri NEA and Missouri State Teachers Association, closing this federal loophole.
