Education is the key to success. From early learning to higher education, every single student in Minnesota and across the country deserves access to a quality education – regardless of race, income, or zip code. One of my top priorities is academic achievement for all and advancing bills that make our state public education system stronger.

With graduation rates in Minnesota that are currently 83% and on a downward trajectory, we need to do better to help future generations succeed. Our education system needs to ensure that students graduating are career or college ready.

When elected, I will:

  • Make sure there is a plan in place to finally close the achievement gap.
  • Make sure the formula used to determine funding for schools be modified to account for inflation.
  • Have financial literacy taught in schools.
