Pat Murphy on Education

 

 


Raise teacher pay and expand universal preschool

Investing in Education: As Speaker of the Iowa House, Pat led efforts to raise teacher pay and expand universal preschool to all Iowa four-year olds. In Congress, he will make sure teachers have a seat at the table when education policy is being crafted and vote against efforts to cut early childhood, public and special education funding so all students are given the support they need to succeed from day one. He will work to pass the Student Loan Relief Act that caps rates on 20-year loans, saving families a projected $11,000 in interest payments, and will work to create partnerships between community colleges, business and labor leaders to ensure worker retraining programs are preparing Iowa workers for good-paying local jobs.

Opposes education vouchers.

Murphy opposes the CC survey question on school vouchers

CC.org's self-description: "The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

The Coalition is a political organization, made up of pro-family Americans who care deeply about ensuring that government serves to strengthen and preserve, rather than threaten, our families and our values. To that end, we work continuously to identify, educate and mobilize Christians for effective political action." The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: 'Education vouchers that allow parents to choose public or private school for their children'
