ANDOVER, MA – Emphasizing that “a good education is the lynchpin to the American Dream,” Democratic congressional candidate Dan Koh today unveiled a detailed education policy proposal. Koh’s platform focuses on implementing universal Pre-K, strengthening public schools, supporting teacher development programs, improving school infrastructure, investing in tuition-free community college, and reducing student debt. The full plan is available at koh2018.com/education.
“Every child deserves access to a quality education, regardless of their socioeconomic background,” said Koh. “However, President Trump’s administration is dismantling our public education system and making it harder for students to get ahead. President Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos are trying to take away resources from public schools and cut crucial federal education funding for programs that help our students thrive. In Congress, I will stand up to this dangerous agenda and fight to ensure quality, accessibility, and affordability for every student.”
