"I have a young daughter and my brother and his wife are teachers, so I understand first-hand just how important it is that our children receive a world-class education that prepares them for the jobs of the 21st century. This begins by passing a middle-class tax-cut that makes college more affordable for families and students. The anti-teacher bill that Tallahassee politicians just passed was a step in the wrong direction. We should be working with our teachers and students, not against them. In Congress I'll fight to fully fund our schools and colleges because teachers should never be asked to pay for their students school supplies and Miami Dade College should never have to turn away students that want to learn so they can find good jobs."
