Education

Schools in the 20th district need more resources to teach our children everything they need to know to be successful in the 21st Century economy.  Beyond the funding problems, it is important to look at education in a new and fundamentally way.

The high schools in the 20th district were designed to meet the needs of another era when a high school diploma was often the end of formal education. In an increasingly complex society, our children’s success often rests on their ability to obtain more specialized and technical training. As a society, we need to make these opportunities available and affordable either while attending high school, at a trade school, a community college or a four-year university.

For that reason, Michele will...

  • Expand opportunities for high school students to take dual enrollment courses
  • Increase funding, access, and support for Virginia’s Community College System to maintain community college's affordability for all students and life-long learners
  • Promote the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (S.T.E.A.M) education; ensuring young people learn the skills necessary to participate in the 21st Century economy
