Education Regulations: Burying Schools in Paperwork. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education of the Committee on Education and the Workforce. U.S. House of Representatives, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session (March 15, 2011). Serial Number 112-12
US House of Representatives
This paper presents the Committee on Education and the Workforce's hearing examining the adverse impact extensive federal regulations and reporting requirements have on teachers, administrators and students in elementary and secondary schools. Too many schools and school districts are overwhelmed by unnecessary paperwork requirements. Currently, the paperwork burden imposed by the Department of Education is larger than that of the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Interior and the Department of Justice. Members testifying before the committee were: Honorable Duncan Hunter, Chairman, Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education; and Honorable Dale E. Kildee, ranking member, Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education. Witnesses testifying before the committee were: Charles Grable, assistant superintendent for instruction, Huntington County Community School Corporation (HCCSC); Robert P. Grimesey, Jr., Ed.D., superintendent, Orange County Public Schools; Jennifer A. Marshall, director, domestic policy studies, the Heritage Foundation; and James Willcox, chief executive officer, Aspire Public Schools. (Contains 23 footnotes.)
