Educating our children is the key to the future of our nation. She believes that giving our students a high-quality education is the best investment we can make in our future.
We know that investing early in our children’s education makes a difference. We need to empower educators with the resources they need to give each of their students the best education possible. Our students deserve every opportunity to succeed with modern schools and classrooms with the best learning technology, before- and after-school tutoring and support programs, and access to extracurricular activities.
Cost of College
The costs of higher education are out of control and putting debilitating debt burdens on our graduates. Jessica believes that we need to provide more scholarships, grants, loans, debt-forgiveness, and service opportunities to students to finance their education. As a Member of Congress, she will work to bring down federal borrowing rates for students while increasing Pell Grants and other student support.
Learning from Experience
The Tampa Bay area is home to a wealth of educators teaching at all levels, from elementary schools to colleges and universities. Jessica looks forward to gaining their insights and perspectives through an Education Advisory Council, so they can share their experiences in and out of the classroom.
