Speaker Ryan will leave ESSA passage, new tax break for choice as K-12 legacy
from Education Week
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who announced that he will not seek re-election to his seat in Congress this fall, will leave behind at least two notable education achievements: He ensured passage of a new federal education law in 2015, and gave a boost to parents seeking resources for school choice through a tax-reform bill approved in 2017. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, was first elected in 1998 and took over as speaker in October 2015, replacing Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner.
