A brighter future for EVERY student

Every student, regardless of their income, deserves access to a high-quality education that prepares them for a bright future.

It's back-to-school time and I'm thinking about the students, school districts, and parents that are struggling to access the 21st century technologies they will need for kids to compete in today's global economy. From K-12 to higher education, Republicans have systematically gutted funding for everything from pre-K to college Pell grants—and we wonder why our middle class is shrinking.

I'm running for Congress because I know that no matter where you come from or what you look like, every child deserves the chance to thrive.

One of my biggest priorities will be to increase our focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) funding for students. Additionally, I am a firm believer that we should spend more on our schools and less on our prisons, and work to reform the criminal justice system by educating more and incarcerating less.

Unfortunately, if Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos have their way, quality education will be further out of reach for students across America. They would rather pour our nation's hard-earned tax dollars into wars, prisons, and unhelpful border walls than invest in our students' futures.

We need a change in leadership so our young people have better chances to prosper than their parents did.
