Creating Opportunity Through Education

Sheldon and education

The American Dream rests on the promise that every child, regardless of the zip code where they were born, can get a first-rate education and work hard in a career of their choosing. That’s why I’ve been focused on improving our public schools, making higher education more affordable, and reducing the student debt burden on graduates who have dedicated their careers to serving others. I helped rewrite the law governing K-12 education to increase support for middle school students, promote school innovation, and expand after-school programs.
