Access to a quality education is our state’s paramount duty. We must invest in education, from early learning through higher education, to ensure that our children have the best opportunity for success later in life. Whether it’s innovative pre-k programs or finding ways to make college more affordable, I will fight for our kids to make sure they have the best education possible.
Quality early childhood education sets our students up for success and is shown to have lifelong benefits. All of our children deserve access to comprehensive early childhood education programs.
