Education

“Public education is the cornerstone of our communities, and all students deserve to have access to quality education and opportunities across our state.”

In Wisconsin, one of our most valuable resources are our K-12 public schools, and renowned UW and Wisconsin Technical College systems. Public education is the cornerstone of our communities, and all students deserve to have access to quality education and opportunities across our state. Our schools are vital resources to provide learning, growth, and opportunity to our children, and we must reprioritize investing in our public education system.

 

In addition to providing opportunity and educational resources to our students, we must do more to lift up our teachers. For too long, Wisconsin educators have been erroneously undervalued, under heard, and under compensated for their dedicated commitment to our state’s students. We must do everything that we can to reverse the extreme damages that Act 10 and Governor Walker had on Wisconsin’s public education system. Our children and students are our future, and it is our responsibility as policymakers to ensure that every opportunity to grow, learn, and thrive is readily available.

 

As a mother to 4 boys who have grown through Madison’s schools, and a proud East High School and UW-Madison Alumna myself, supporting our Wisconsin public education at all levels is personal to me. I have been a passionate advocate and leader for affordable and debt free college, investing in Wisconsin’s teachers, funding bilingual-bicultural education, and much more.

 

When elected to be your State Senator I will continue to advocate for funding for our public schools, including our K-12 system, UW-System, and technical schools & trades programs. Further, I will continue to advocate for teachers' rights to unionize and be paid a fair wage, for more resources for underserved students, and many other areas that work to support our Wisconsin educators and students.

 

In the State Senate, I will continue advocating for Wisconsin students and educators across our state.
