Education

One of the single most important responsibilities we have to our children is ensuring access to high-quality opportunities in education from early childhood to college and beyond. That’s why David is dedicated to equipping our children and young adults with the tools they’ll need to succeed in today’s economy. 

    • Through David’s advocacy, federal education policy now includes enhanced supports for after-school and expanded learning programs as essential parts of school improvement.

    • David has organized a Youth Advisory Council of high school students to ensure he hears the latest on issues and concerns directly from the young men and women in schools throughout the district.

    • This year, David has successfully advocated for increased funding for afterschool programs and federal initiatives that provide financial assistance to school districts throughout Rhode Island to help ensure all children can succeed in school, regardless of who they are or where they live.

    • David is championing the Rebuild America’s Schools Act, to provide billions of dollars to ensure teaching and learning is taking place in safe and modern school buildings.

    • No one should have to face a lifetime of debt to attend college and get the skills needed to compete in today’s economy, that’s why David has been a strong defender of Pell Grants, and supported a budget this year that increased funding for this vital financial aid program.

    • David has also introduced the Making College Affordable Act, which would reform the federal student loan system, create interest-free federal student loans, and help put a college degree within reach financially for more Rhode Islanders.
