Education Issues

Elise is a passionate advocate for our North Country students, parents, and teachers.



Elise is a passionate advocate for our North Country students, parents, and teachers. We must empower our communities to take a leading role in educating and training the next generation of leaders. Providing access to high quality education gives our children the best chance to grow and to realize the American dream.

As a Member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, Elise is committed to fighting on behalf of North Country students. In her first term, Elise worked to pass and have signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), much needed legislation that rewrote No Child Left Behind and reauthorized and reformed our K-12 education policies. This legislation lifted the burden of Common Core from our schools, restoring local educational control and moving us away from a one-size-fits-all, top-down education system 

Elise has taken a strong stance against Critical Race Theory and racist indoctrionation in our schools. She has been a leading voice for parental power when it comes to education, rather than putting that power in the hands of the federal government, superintendents, and teachers’ unions. She is one of the leaders of the Parents’ Bill of Rights.

Elise recently introduced the End College CCP Act, which would limit federal funding for higher education institutions that have partnerships with the People’s Republic of China. 

Elise has also successfully led the effort to strengthen Pell Grants by fighting for year-round accessibility. She also led legislation to extend the Perkins Loan Program, which provides access to financing for many low-income students across the country. Elise is currently leading the Go to High School, Go to College Act. Many students are now taking college courses while in high school, and this legislation will give high school students taking college classes access to the Pell Grant program. Higher education should be accessible to everyone, and this bill will help ensure that all students have the opportunity to pursue a college education.
