Education

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.

“I believe that your teachers are fundamental to your education,” Panetta told students. “To me, they are one of the most important aspects of an education, especially at your age and younger. I believe there should be more focus on teachers.”
