We believe in the power of education and making our public schools strong. This means ensuring public schools have the funding for our children to succeed, securing additional funding for educational initiatives, making college affordable, expanding early learning opportunities, holding charter schools accountable, and ensuring that hardworking teachers are compensated fairly.
