Education

As a first-generation college student who worked her way from Johnson County Community College to Cornell Law School, I know how valuable good education is for the success of our children.  

Every student should have access to quality public education, regardless of their ZIP Code, ability, or special needs. I support implementing a holistic approach to education, focusing on access to quality public options from pre-K through secondary higher education and promoting strong, skills-based training programs.  

I’m committed to making higher education more affordable, so our kids aren’t graduating with crushing debt. I’m working to implement policies that encourage and facilitate the opportunity for higher education. That’s why I signed onto legislation to lower the cost of student loans and protect students from bad actors. We must also expose students to careers in trades and technical areas – skills that are vitally important to a robust economy.
