Strengthening our Local Public Schools
The most effective way of securing our
nation’s future prosperity is by investing in our children’s
education. Bill has worked with determination to provide public
schools with the necessary resources to maintain high levels of
educational excellence and prepare our children for the emerging
technologies of the 21st century.
Improving College AffordabilityAs costs rise, it is harder for working families to afford college tuition, textbooks and housing. Access to Pell grants and other forms of federal financial aid are often the deciding factor in a student’s ability to further their education. Bill supports full funding of Pell grants as well as efforts to work with our local community colleges and four-year institutions to assist students in getting the resources that can help them transition to the job market.
