Democrats for Education Reform Chooses Hubbard

Last week Represenitive Rodney R. Hubbard was named the first Midwest Regional Director of the Democrats for Education Reform.

Hubbard has shown a passion for proven education reforms (such as school choice, charter schools and merit pay), especially with his recent work in the House. He is well-known for working across party lines to improve public schools and provide parents with high-quality choices for the education of their children. As regional director Hubbard will be able to focus all of his time and energy on this issue.

DFER is a national political action committee that is dedicated to improving schools, by encouraging more productive dialogue within the Democratic Party on the need to fundamentally reform American public education. The group operates on all levels of government to educate elected officials and support reform-minded candidates for public office.

The courage and conviction of Hubbard and the other DFER leaders is exactly what we need to fix our failing schools.
