Jamie Raskin on Education

 

 


Curb the dogmas and protocols of the new testing mania

Jamie is passionately committed to the educational success of all young people. Jamie is proud of the time he spent volunteering at his kids' schools and proud of the work he has done in Annapolis to fully fund public education, increase desperately needed school construction dollars, enact Farm-to-Schools legislation & improve school nutrition, and curb the dogmas & protocols of the new testing mania which are all too often squeezing out real education and driving teachers out of the profession.

Stop hobbling our young people with mountains of debt

Jamie is deeply committed to making higher education affordable and accessible to all young people. "I am fighting for debt-free college education as a national priority," he says. "We need this new generation of creative, culturally aware, and technologically savvy young people to confront the stubborn problems of our day after they graduate. Let's stop saddling and hobbling our young people with mountains of debt that constrain their ability to thrive."

Opposes states adopting federal education standards.

Raskin opposes the PVS survey question on education standards

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Education: Do you generally support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
