Issue Position: Education

Issue Position

One of my priorities in Congress is ensuring our nation's youth receive a quality education. Regardless of race, religion, income level, age, or learning ability - everyone should have access to a strong education. For this reason, I will support legislation to make education more affordable and comprehensive at all levels.

The "one-size-fits-all" approach to education often favored by Washington, D.C. bureaucrats only interferes with our local schools. The United States must cut the red-tape tying the hands of local educators. Parents and educators should have the resources and flexibility available to implement individualized K-12 educational strategies that meet the needs of their community and ensure a high-quality educational experience for every student.

I fully support initiatives to assist minorities in achieving higher education and believe everyone should have the opportunity to lead a successful life. However, a college degree should not always be necessary for success. I support expanding vocational and trade school opportunities for our students.

Education is the pathway to success and I believe everyone should have access to the tools they need to accomplish their goals.
