Build on Successes of Public Education

Any healthy democracy needs to have a strong educated populace.  Public education is the great equalizer therefore all American citizens should have access to quality public schools.  Too many members of Congress want to farm out the responsibility of American education to private schools who are subject to market and for-profit forces. Educational institutions freed from competing for dollars can better promote rigorous academic curricula.  I will work to promote including pre-K in the public schools, establish standards of incorporating media literacy and critical thinking in secondary schools and find solutions for college affordability and the $1.31 trillion student loan debt crisis.
