This should be world-class

My youngest was born the same year that Oregon passed Measure 5, the property tax limitation that drastically reduced school funding. As my two children entered public schools, I became an active volunteer and saw the consequences that budget cuts have on our schools and on our children.

I also recognized the value of small class sizes and the variety of classes that can be offered when our schools have robust funding.

Now that my children are grown, I remain committed to fostering a strong public education system — pre-kindergarten through college.

Our public education system must provide all students, regardless of background and ability, with a well-rounded education that helps them meet their full potential and prepares them for the future. That means we must:

This year, I will continue to fight for every child to have the opportunity for an accessible and meaningful early childhood education, K-12 education, and beyond.
