Tuition-Free Public Universities and Trade School:
Higher education is the key to a job that offers higher wages and better retirement packages. Education should be an option for all residents, regardless of ability to pay.
I will support legislation that will make attending a public university or trade school tuition-free.
The Trump administration and his partners in Congress are attacking public schools in an effort to funnel public money to private schools run by corporations. I oppose using any public funding for charter schools. In addition, private schools should be held to the same standards as public schools.
I will introduce legislation that prohibits funding private charter schools with public money. Taxpayers do not pay taxes to have their money squandered for profits while their educational institutions decay. I will ensure that public education funding is returned to public schools.
