I am fed up that we live in a country where our college students are paying higher interest rates simply to get an education than they would if they were buying a new car. I am fired up to:
● Stop treating students like profit centers and make college affordable and debt-free for everyone, with free two-year community college, vocational and trade programs, and certification programs.
● Alleviate student loan debt for the individuals who need it most, including teachers and other public servants.
● Ensure all of our students have a pathway to post-secondary education through increasing Pell Grant programs, and mentorship opportunities in our trade and vocational programs.
