Despite having only been a member of Congress for a month, U.S. Rep. Aaron Bean, R-Fla., will chair the U.S. House Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee.
Bean will lead the subcommittee, which is under the umbrella of the U.S. House Education and Workforce Committee. He will also serve on the U.S. House Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions Subcommittee.
U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-NC, who leads the committee, explained why Bean was chosen to lead the subcommittee.
“Congressman Bean is a staunch advocate for education freedom and parental rights. I am proud to appoint him as chair of the Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education Subcommittee. When it comes to standing up to the teachers unions and education bureaucracy that kept schools closed and students out of the classroom—Rep. Bean is the man for the job. I look forward to working together in the days and months ahead,” she said.
“Over the past few years, Florida has led the way in keeping our children in the classroom and preparing them for the future. I am honored that Dr. Foxx has placed her confidence in me, and I look forward to working with her to support our educators in Florida and across the nation,” said Bean.
Based out of Nassau County, Bean has served in both chambers of the Florida Legislature, rising to become state Senate president pro tempore. Bean represents a solidly Republican district on the First Coast.
