Education is the cornerstone of success for our children. Our public schools and state universities give our children the tools they need to strive for a better life. I will support adequately funding public K-12 education so that success isn’t reserved only for the rich and lucky. That funding is an investment in our future.
I also will support early-learning programs, which are critical to giving all children a fair and equal chance at the start. We need to expand these programs and improve access to them.
Education after high school is even more important in the 21st century. I want to give more middle-class children the chance to earn a college degree, and I want to expand apprenticeship programs for young people eager to learn the skills for productive work.
Our veterans serve as an inspiring example for all of us: They have sacrificed for the greater good to keep us strong and safe. We need to make sure their hard-earned rights are protected.
And, of course, we need a healthy economy to provide jobs to the men and women hoping to build a better life. I will do all I can to increase those opportunities for jobs.
