Education and Workforce Development
Task Force Description
The mission of the ALEC Education and Workforce Development Task Force is to promote excellence in the nation’s educational system, to advance reforms through parental choice, to support efficiency, accountability, and transparency in all educational institutions, and to ensure America’s youth are given the opportunity to succeed.
