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 ranks 41st nationwide in classroom spending. Texas children deserve better than that. If I get elected to Congress, I will fight for high pay for Teachers. More classroom spending state-wide cause our kids deserve better than what we are giving them now. How can we call them our future, but we do not give them the proper tool to get ready for the future. A college education cost is at an all-time high right now 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 debt figures. I will bring a bill to the Congress floor that will allow students who go to medical school or nursing school to go to school completely free. You must finish school, and you must work in apart 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.
