As a former guidance counselor, school teacher and father of three children, I am an ardent supporter of quality public education and education reform. I strongly oppose cuts in education funding proposed by the Bush administration, and prefer instead the renewed and expanded provisions for education programs, such as Head Start, as determined by the Democrats' funding choices for this Congress. In addition I am a longtime supporter of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), for which I is in favor of reauthorization legislation that will provide $12 billion for the fiscal year 2008 and will increase funding for free public education for special-needs children each subsequent year. I also continue to fight for more funding and increased access for federal financial aid programs by way of changes to the Higher Education Act.
