Education and Opportunity

Education is key to success in our economy. I support efforts to ensure all students have access to a high quality education, one that best fits their learning needs. I will work to update critical education policies and return decision-making back to parents and communities. 

In addition, I support improving access to quality, affordable higher education. I will support efforts to help students and parents have clear information about the real costs of college. This includes reforms that ensure student aid will be available for those who need it most and reductions in costly federal regulations on colleges and universities. It is time for a new direction, one in which institutions, states and the students themselves play a key role in helping control costs and making responsible choices.

Finally, scientific and technological discoveries have made our country a global economic leader.  I support efforts aimed at spurring innovation, which will lead to economic growth and create jobs for the American people.  Additionally, I believe we should encourage our children to become the scientists and engineers of tomorrow.  I support efforts to increase access to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs in order to inspire children to pursue these fields.
