EDUCATION & COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY

Diana knows the most important investment we can make is in our children’s education. Every child – no matter what zip code they are born in – deserves a quality education. She knows that investments in schools, at all levels, will ensure we as a nation continue to have the world’s best workforce.

Expanding access to quality education, starting with preschool, is one of Diana’s top priorities. Diana has a bedrock belief that building an excellent public education system that expands quality education opportunities for all, is the single best investment we can make in our collective future. We need to get rid of the “one size fits all” model of No Child Left Behind, and allow our local schools autonomy to enact the policies that work best for them.

A college education and post-secondary education is becoming a necessity in our modern economy, yet obtaining these skills is becoming harder and harder because of the rising costs. These higher costs continue past the 4 years a student spends in college, as student loan debt is exempt from refinancing. It is a crime that we burden our future generations with crushing debt. Diana will work vigorously to make college more affordable by cutting student loan interest rates, and allowing students to restructure student loan debt.
