As a former teacher and University President, Senator Blunt understands the importance of a high quality education for students. Senator Blunt looks forward to working with Missouri's teachers and administrators as he works to craft the best possible solutions for our students.

America's economy and job creation depend on having a highly-skilled and highly-educated workforce that can compete effectively in the global economy. Senator Blunt believes that funding and control of classrooms belongs to the states and local communities -- not to Washington D.C.

With the federal government's limited role, Senator Blunt will continue to work to encourage policies that emphasize improvement in our schools and fight for greater local control, so our children can have success in the future.
