Early Childhood Education
I am working to expand access to early childhood education because it gives students the best chance to have long term success. In college, I worked as an Executive Assistant at Family Star Early Headstart Center and learned first hand that students who attend early childhood education are more likely to graduate high school and seek higher education. Quality education for all children.
*Increase funding for our public education system (We rank 49th in the nation in spending on K-12 education per $1000 of personal income).
*Support school districts to provide 21st century education opportunities for all students and strengthen collaboration with parents, students and teachers.
*It is critical we increase funding for early childhood programs, such as the Colorado Preschool Program.
