Republican Lawmakers Begin National Tour of Schools

Updated:
(Cincinnati, Ohio-AP) -- Three Republican members of Congress
today visited what has been one of the worst schools for academics
in the Cincinnati school district.

U-S representatives J-C Watts of Oklahoma, Steve Chabot
of Ohio and Anne Northup of Kentucky are touring
schools to see how Washington can better support education. All
three also back giving schools more flexibility in spending federal
dollars.

Their bus tour has been dubbed the Education Express.

The first stop was the Clifton school, which was identified last
year as one of the worst among the Cincinnati district's 79
schools.

The district has replaced the school's entire staff and has
fixed up the 94-year-old building. Curriculum changes have also
been made to focus on student achievement.
