Quality Education for All

Our students are confronting a student debt crisis and, for far too many, college is growing out of reach and apprenticeship programs are few and far between. Tackling the growing inequities in our communities starts with making sure that all of our children and young adults have access to a quality education, from pre-K and early education to all the way through college or trade and apprenticeship opportunities

Where to start:

  • Making the investments in public education that allow us to attract, train, and retain world-class educators, build modern school facilities in every community, and ensure that every student has the tools and skills they need to achieve their future goals.

  • Acknowledging and confronting policies that define opportunity by zip code.

  • Dismantling the school-to-incarceration pipeline and bringing an end to disciplinary policies that lead to the disproportionate exclusion and expulsion of Black and Brown students.

  • Tackling the enormous financial barriers that too often make education out of reach for working families and bury students under an insurmountable mountain of debt.

  • Canceling student loan debt, providing for debt-free public college, and expanding trade and apprenticeship opportunities.
