As the father of three young children, Steven knows that the roots of Nevada's economy and our state's future are found in our schools.
Our state currently ranks dead last in America. Our children deserve world class educations to compete against workers around the world.
As Majority Leader, Steven stood up against the Tea Party extremists who wanted to gut education. And in Congress Steven will fight to:
Make sure the federal government is investing in Nevada students and strengthening our schools;
Get our children ready for the 21st century economy by supporting early childhood education and increase funding for Head Start and Early Head Start programs;
Address the challenges in the Race to the Top criteria that prevented additional federal funding from being secured to help our kids succeed in the classroom;
Work with local school districts to emphasize STEM education so that math and science classes are rigorous ensuring our children are ready to compete;
Make sure we have the best teachers in the classrooms and hold them accountability.
