In education, I will make investments so that our littlest Minnesotans have a safe, inspiring place to learn and develop into citizens with world-class knowledge to tackle the workforce or prepare for college degrees. I will fight to ensure that our schools are fully funded and have the resources that they need to drive down class size and increase the number of Social Workers in schools. Lastly, no student should have to go hungry and so I will propose that the school lunch program be funded similarly with state resources to how the federal government already pays for student breakfast program.
Fully-funded schools with appropriate class sizes
Voluntary, state-funded pre-K for up to two years prior to Kindergarten
State-funded student lunch program
Invest in school social workers to tackle behavioral & mental issues
Tuition waiver for 2-year public college tuition for high demand jobs
Public/Private Job Training Incentive Program to train / retain MN workers
