Fourth District Congressman Todd Rokita says if re-elected for a third term, education reform would be
one of his priorities.
The Republican wants to give states the power to set their own benchmarks for K-12 education instead of being held to the guidelines in the No Child Left Behind Act.
Rokita says he would also seek to streamline the application process for federal loans and grant applications for higher education.
His challenger, John Dale, has been a government and history teacher at Western Boone High School for 24 years.
