Education is an issue near and dear to my heart. I am proud to have created the Champion in the Making Legacy Foundation for high schoolers wishing to attend traditional and vocational schools. I created this 501(c)(3) to honor my son Jordan’s legacy; a foundation which offers educational assistance to support students that might otherwise fall through the cracks.
In this vein, I understand that student debt too often holds our students and graduates back. This crippling burden hurts our economy, discourages innovation, and makes it harder for working people and families to feel comfortable in their fiscal situations. I will support legislation to ameliorate this problem.
When I am in Congress, I will work to fully fund K-12 public education, and to make community colleges, public universities, and vocational schools more affordable for working families. I strongly oppose Betsy DeVos’ agenda in Washington, and I believe that our public schools need to be strengthened in order to give all of our children a solid educational foundation.
