Chairman Cole, Ranking Member DeLauro and Members of the Subcommittee:
Thank you for the opportunity to testify on the President’s Fiscal Year 2019 Budget Request for the Department of Education.
This budget sharpens and hones the focus of our mission: serving students by meeting their needs. When the Department was created, it was charged to “prohibit federal control of education.” I take that charge seriously. Accordingly, President Trump is committed to reducing the federal footprint in education, and that is reflected in this budget.
This achievement is an important step towards building so-called topological quantum computers.

Thank you, Jim, for that kind introduction and for your leadership of this fine organization. I appreciate the opportunity to be with all of you and the chance to get out the Department for a minute – the early signs of spring are promising food for the soul!
I know you must appreciate this opportunity to gather and learn from each other, and to return to your communities, your schools, and your homes reenergized and refocused on our main motivation: individual students.
Hello, everyone. It’s good to be with all of you in my official capacity as Secretary.
Before Governor Bush and I begin our conversation, I first wanted to set the scene for the current state of education in America.
Take a moment to think about how much of life has changed in the last 50 years – phones, shopping, transportation… all radically different than before.
Yet there’s one glaring exception: the classroom.
There hasn’t been much change in education between my own experience in grade school and that of kids today.
