The best way to ensure the long-term growth and strength of our community is to create an environment where our students can thrive. We must invest in education in order to equip our youth with the skills necessary to secure jobs and remain competitive in the global workforce. We must continue to strengthen our school system from early to higher education to ensure we prepare Americans of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds for high-paying, high-skilled jobs. I am committed to ensuring every student receives a first-class education by improving our K-12 public schools, supporting our teachers, expanding access to early education programs, and making college affordable for every student.
