Education

  • Increase funding, access, and support for Virginia’s Community College System to maintain community college's affordability for all students and life-long learners
  • Increase funding for preschool and Head Start programs so that students don’t begin school at a deficit and then spend the rest of their academic careers playing catch-up
  • Work with local businesses to make sure that our education system is providing them with successful employees, allowing students to remain in the 20th if they chose. Investing in our students now is an investment in our community for the future.
  • Preserve funding for public schools so that our tax dollars help the most students in the most efficient way possible. Michele opposes vouchers or any other program that would divert public funds to private schools.
  • Work to expand programs such as Medicaid, SNAP, and availability of high-speed internet so we can make sure that all children have resources they need to be successful both in school and at home.
  • Hold schools accountable in a way that allows them to improve in a manner that suits them. No two schools are the same and so every school improvement needs to be different.
  • Expand opportunities for high school students to take dual enrollment courses.
