Issue Position: Education
Kenny Hulshof believes that school children can achieve their dreams right here in Missouri, and the foundation starts with access to a world-class education. As governor, Kenny will work to ensure that Missouri's public schools receive the funding they require as allocated by elected officials, not judges. He will also maintain the momentum created in recent years that has increased education funding without raising taxes.
On the issue of higher education, Kenny is the only candidate who supports the innovative Lewis & Clark Discovery Initiative, which has generated $335 million for Missouri's colleges, universities, and students without raising a single tax.
As a graduate of the University of Missouri, Kenny understands the burden of mounting tuition and he will work with legislators and college officials to expand scholarship and employment opportunities for Missouri students.
