In a public forum on education on August 24th, 2011, Congressman Raul Grijalva spoke about the status and future of public education in Arizona. Later in the year, Congress will discuss amendments and reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the largest source of K-12 funding, requirements and standards. Grijalva is on the U.S. House Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education, and strongly supports public education.
