Rochelle Township High School played host to United States Representative Adam Kinzinger on Monday.
Representative Kinzinger took the opportunity to meet students and teachers in person while he and his peers in Washington are becoming more involved in education policy.
The congressman is visiting both old and new schools and learning what challengers they are facing.
"The quality of a building isn't going to necessarily determine the quality of education somebody receives, but sometimes it helps to be easier to deliver it," Representative Kinzinger said.
He added that making sure older schools have the resources they need to be efficient is a key issue.
