Al Lawson on Education

 

 


College education needs to be attainable and affordable

College Affordability: A college education needs to be attainable and affordable. With an ever-changing workforce, it is becoming more apparent that a college degree is necessary to be successful in 21st century America. Expensive college tuition has been something I've fought against during my time in the state legislature, and as a member of Congress, I will continue fighting.
    There are two key components that must be addressed:
  1. College tuition has continued to increase faster than growth of income.
  2. Student loan debt is rising among Millennials due to alarmingly high interest rates.
As a nation, we need to analyze college debt reform strategies that Senator Elizabeth Warren has proposed in Washington.

I believe in all options available in public education

K-12 education is the cornerstone of our communities. It is what gives children the opportunity to develop and learn skillsets. I've seen too many failing schools refusing to raise the bar in America. I believe in all effective options that are currently available in public education. As torch-bearers, it is our duty to ensure that children are provided with resources that are supported by credible research. I'm all in as long as positive outcomes follow.
