“We support House Democrats in their resolution to remove U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from both the House budget and education committees. Rep. Greene’s disturbing harassment of at least one teenage school shooting survivor and her willingness to spread misinformation and dangerous conspiracy theories have shown that she cannot be entrusted to make policy decisions, particularly for schools, children, and their families. She does not represent what it is we expect of leaders, especially those whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s youth through education. We ask House Republicans to join their colleagues across the aisle in ensuring that Rep. Greene is removed from her committee assignments immediately.”
Deborah S. Delisle is the president and CEO of the Alliance for Excellent Education and served as assistant secretary of elementary and secondary education from 2012 to 2015.
