“Rep. Glenn Thompson has been an important voice in support of Pennsylvania educators and students in Washington,” said National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel. “We know that he will continue to put students and educators ahead of partisan politics, because he knows firsthand that ensuring great public schools for all students is not a Democratic or Republican issue. He also understands that the road to economic prosperity and security starts in our nation’s public schools. That’s why we are proud to recommend the reelection of Rep. Glenn Thompson for Congress.”
“We are pleased to recommend Rep. Thompson in his bid for re-election in the Fifth Congressional District,” said Todd Russell, Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) Central Region Political Action Committee for Education Chair. “He has been an advocate for teachers and public education by fighting for Title I funding, vocational technical education, and to reverse the No Child Left Behind Act, which will enable students to focus on learning, and not just standardized testing.”
Congressman Thompson has been a consistent legislative leader for education. He serves on the House Education and Workforce Committee; Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee, and the Higher Education Subcommittee. Additionally, he co-chairs the bi-partisan Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus.
