Education

Investing in the past, present and future.

Minnesota’s educational needs cannot be met by only focusing on present and future students. We must recognize that our past students and present labor workforce have education needs. The ultimate goal I wish to achieve is creating a workforce and education system that can adapt to whatever challenges our global economy presents us.

My plan does this through-

  • Investing in those willing to invest in Minnesota. ~ Students of any age can earn tuition to any of Minnesota’s community colleges, technical colleges or job skills training programs if they are willing to invest their time in their community.

  • Universal Pre-K ~ A mind is a terrible thing to waste. We need to unlock the full potential of our youngest Minnesotans by providing high quality Pre-K learning programs.

  • Continued high level funding of Minnesota’s K-12 programs and making Minnesota teacher pay among the highest in the country.

By providing world class education opportunities to all Minnesotans we will create the finest workforce in the world and provide a better economy for generations to come!
