It is imperative that we offer all our young people access to high quality, affordable education.
The costs of college have skyrocketed, and young people today face crushing student debt loads. In Congress, I will fight to lower interest rates of student debt, make it easier for students and graduates to pay off their loans, and incentivize colleges to lower tuition rates.
As a product of the New York City schools, I appreciate the value of a strong public education system. In Washington, I will oppose Republican attempts to marginalize our traditional public education system. I will fight for funding to keep schools open, save after-school and extracurricular programs, and hire more teachers in Queens.
