Schock Says Too Much Fed Control Of School Boards

Congressman Aaron Schock has introduced legislation that he says will take power away from the federal government and give it back to local school boards.


Schock started his political career by being elected to the Peoria School Board at the age of 19 on his way to becoming one of the youngest members of Congress. Now the Peoria Republican says the feds are putting too many rules and regulations on local school boards by, for example, piling on requirements for districts seeking federal grants.


Schock says his legislation will limit the ability of the U.S. Department of Education to impose new rules on local districts.
