Education

“In Congress, I will fight to better fund our schools so rural school districts can increase per-student spending, invest in job training, and increase teacher pay.”


Kids in rural Colorado deserve the same educational quality and support as in big cities and in other states. Unfortunately, many of our schools lack the tools and funding they need to provide each child with a quality education. When the pandemic started, I received my substitute teaching license. I have seen firsthand the complexity of rural school funding. I saw COVID set our kids back. We need to keep our schools open at all costs. It is our responsibility to give every child an opportunity to succeed. In Congress, I will fight to better fund our schools so rural school districts can increase per-student spending, invest in job training, and increase teacher pay.


Despite the challenges our public schools face, they’re currently under attack by Lauren Boebert, who wants to control what our kids are taught in the classroom. The classroom is no place for political agendas like Lauren Boebert's.
