As a mother with three children enrolled in public schools, quality education is extremely important to Mia. Mia believes in a strong educational system that will allow America to continue in its role as the world’s premier leader in scientific research and technological development. She supports a system that prepares students for the workplace. Mia has worked hard to push for reforms that bring about necessary changes.
Utah families want better quality education, lower costs, and more local control over decisions related to education. In recent years, the U.S. Department of Education has expanded the federal role in education to unprecedented levels, to the detriment of our children and college students. Utah—not the federal government—knows what is best for Utah’s students. Mia trusts Utah teachers and Utah parents over Washington bureaucrats.
While in Congress, Mia has kept her promises to Utah’s 4th District by taking the following actions:
• Co-introduced the Student Right to Know Before You Go Act, which would provide prospective college students with crucial information regarding outcomes at each college, allowing them to make decisions informed by data
• Introduced the Flexibility to Innovate for College Affordability Act, which would provide regulatory relief and flexibility to universities, helping them to reduce the costs of college education
• Introduced the Enhancing Opportunities for Medical Doctors Act of 2016, which would promote training in cutting-edge medical specialties
• Cosponsored the Local Control of Education Act, which would prohibit the federal government from mandating a school’s adoption of Common Core State Standards
• Worked with fellow members of the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus to ensure education systems prepare students for the workplace
• Introduced the Funding Local Schools Act, a bill that would help to bring additional funding to Utah’s schools.
Mia has pledged to continue to work hard for your children’s future.
