Education

Doug is dedicated to supporting our Historically Black Colleges and Universities, or HBCUs. Alabama boasts 15 HBCUs, more than any other state in the country. He is proud to have helped secure a 14% increase in federal funding for HBCUs in the 2018 Omnibus Spending Bill, bringing funding from $244.7 million in 2017 to $279.6 in 2018.

Education

Doug reaffirmed his commitment to supporting HBCUs and introduced the bipartisan FUTURE Act, which would reauthorize funding for all minority-serving higher education institutions and provide continued support for HBCUs whose funding for 2020 is up in the air.

Education

Doug’s push for better rural broadband access is closely tied with education. He remains adamant that internet access is key to ending the “homework gap” between rural and urban school districts -- and allowing rural students to be able to access the same resources online as their urban counterparts.

Education

The best and most viable solutions come from the local level where parents, students, and local administrators can collaborate and work towards success together. And I believe that school choice, charter schools, and improving our existing public schools are all things that need to be a part of the education mix for Alabama children.
