I strongly support the prevention of bullying and the work many organizations do to eliminate it. I have supported legislation such as H.R. 1652, the Student Non-Discrimination Act, which would prevent any school program that receives federal funding from discriminating against students based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation. I am a co-sponsor of this legislation because I feel every student deserves to learn in a safe environment.
For me, education from the time a child is born through graduation is a top priority. Early childhood education and experiences are critical to give every young person a foundation for life. We must provide the opportunity for Pre-K education for all children. We must fund K-12 public education in ways that that offer the rigorous coursework necessary to prepare students to pursue higher education.
