Help put quality teachers in the classroom

The federal government has a relatively limited role in K-12 education; however, Joyce Beatty will advocate for the federal government to continue to ensure that it provides resources to help put quality teachers in the classroom, tackles classroom size, and provides a quality education for all students.

Joyce Beatty has been a strong advocate for Head Start throughout her career and will continue to advocate for the program that prepares low income students for success when entering kindergarten.

Sponsored 10/10 Loan Forgiveness: cancel college loans after 10 years.

Beatty co-sponsored Student Loan Fairness Act

Congressional Summary:Student Loan Fairness Act:

Opponent's argument against bill: (Blog post on voices.yahoo.com, "Why I'm Against the Student Loan Fairness Act"): The two key points to this bill are:

  1. The 10-10 plan: Where an individual would be required to make ten years of payments at 10% of their discretionary income, after which their remaining federal student loan debt would be forgiven.
  2. Cap federal interest rates at 3.4% and allowing existing borrowers whose educational loan debt exceeds their income to convert their private loan debt into federal Direct Loans.
