I firmly believe that education is the incubator of American innovation, prosperity, and economic equality. I have consistently advocated for programs such as Title I, Head Start, migrant education, and tutoring and mentoring for first-year college students. I will continue to support year-round Pell, streamlined student loan repayment processes, and student loan forgiveness for public service.
