Congressman Mark DeSaulnier Launches Education Listening Tour

February 18, 2015
Press Release

Walnut Creek -- As a newly appointed Member of the House Education & Workforce Committee, Congressman Mark DeSaulnier is launching an Education Listening Tour to visit schools across the district and to hear firsthand from students, parents, educators and school administrators about ways to improve our educational system. DeSaulnier will begin the tour by visiting three schools the week of February 16th.

“Children need a quality education to prepare them to thrive in an increasingly more global economy and competitive world. One of my main priorities as a member of the Committee on Education and Workforce is to reform this broken system and to put an emphasis on fostering learning from a young age and ensuring that students leave high school or college career-ready. I look forward to speaking with education stakeholders in my district to hear what they think works and what needs to be improved. This tour will help educate me on the best ways to serve the residents of my district and will allow me to share with my colleagues the successes of California’s educational system,” said Congressman Mark DeSaulnier.
