Congressman John Larson

2018 U.S. Congressional Races

First Congressional District Representative John Larson

"As a former teacher, and the father of a current teacher, I know how hard educators work and how important they are to our communities. We need to heavily invest in our public schools because every student deserves an opportunity to succeed. I will fight back against Secretary DeVos' attempts to denigrate our schools and will work to ensure teachers have the resources and support they need to help all students fulfill their potential."

Hear What Some Teachers Are Saying

"A former high school teacher himself, U.S. Congressman John Larson has a proud history of standing up for Connecticut's teachers and public schools. When U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos attacked East Hartford Public Schools last year, John turned out for a rally in support of students and teachers, encouraging them to stand proud and reminding Ms. DeVos, 'You attack one of us, you attack all of us!' Let's send Rep. Larson back to Congress so that he can keep fighting for our profession and our schools."
