Education

Since the birth of our country, the cornerstone of the American dream has been opportunity. In the 21st century, access to that opportunity requires access to a high quality education system that allows students to compete in the global economy. We have a duty to provide everyone with access to a robust educational pipeline from preschool through high school to ensure that they have the opportunity to grow and pursue their full potential.

Finally, the key to achieving success in a modern economy is higher education. American students have access to the best higher educational opportunities available, including traditional four year colleges, apprenticeships and other technical training; but they deserve the opportunity to improve their career prospects without becoming burdened by debt.
