Teachers are underpaid, period. The American education system is broken, and it has been for years. We are the best country in the world, but we have kids in High school that are reading on a third-grade level. Texas is the best state in America, but we are ranked 41st nationwide in classroom spending. Texas children deserve better than that. If I get elected to Congress, I will fight for higher pay for Teachers and more classroom spending state-wide because our kids deserve better than what we are giving them now. How can we call them our future, but not give them the proper tools to get ready for the future? The cost of a college education is at an all-time high. It’s crazy we are putting our students through this.

No one should go into debt because they want a higher education. I will fight for free college for anybody that wants to go. As long as you keep your GPA at 3.0 & above, you will get free college. If your GPA falls below a 3.0, financial aid will be available for you. I’m a believer if you want something, you must work for it, so if you want that free college under my plan, all you need is a GPA of 3.0 & above, and you will never pay a cent or go into debt while you are pursuing your college education.

COVID-19 showed us that we need medical professionals across America. We are short on doctors and nurses, but students do not go into those professions because they do not want to go into six figure debt. I will bring a bill to the floor of Congress that will allow students to go to medical school or nursing school completely free. You must finish school, and you must work in a part of America that needs more doctors and nurses for five years after graduation, and your student loans will be forgiven entirely. We need more doctors and nurses in America to keep up with our growing population.
