Hagel on the issues - EDUCATION

Today's topic is education. The information comes from his new website.
  • Senator Hagel has led the effort in the Senate to reduce the 30-year-old unfunded education mandate on our local schools by increasing funds for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
  • Senator Hagel has worked to increase funding to support Nebraska's community colleges.
  • Senator Hagel voted against No Child Left Behind because it expands the role of the federal government in education and undermines local and state control of education.
