Investment: The constant battle over if and how we fund public schools needs to end. Public schools, in every single town in every county, need to be fully funded and supported by policy that aims to prepare students to lead this state in the future.

Teachers: Kansas teachers are underpaid. It has to change. We need an education system that reflects the value we place on the role of great educators and how critical they are to preparing our kids to lead this state.

Childhood Education: Access to early childhood education is essential to working parents and critical to a child’s future. We need to expand access for childcare in every community, urban and rural alike. When parents can access safe, reliable, quality early childhood education and care, they can focus on providing the life they want and deserve for their family.

Workforce Training: We need to provide increased paths into technical and vocational training for younger Kansans as well as critical access to continuing education and workforce development programs for older Kansans.
