As a father, ensuring every student has access to a high-quality education is a personal priority for me. Every child in America, regardless of their background or zip code, deserves access to a quality school that provides proper attention and resources to all its students. That is why I support school choice and believe the federal government must incentivize educators and employers to ensure our schools are providing young people clear and direct paths to quality jobs.
Regarding higher education, it will never again be one-size fits all. In the 21st Century, there is more than one path to a successful and rewarding career. Every American should be encouraged to pursue the path that is best for his or her individual success. I want to preserve access to a traditional university or college education, while also providing students and families options for vocational and skills-based training. We need to make higher education more transparent and we need to strengthen Career and Technical Education programs.
