Education

One of the ways to reduce the inflationary effect of government backed student loans on rising college costs is to phase the government out of student lending, leaving it to the private sector, such as banks.

Education

School choice is about a fundamental right for parents to have access to an educational environment that serves their children best. I believe taxpayer dollars should fund all educational options. Rhode Island parents, and parents across America, should have a wide range of high-quality schools to choose, like traditional public schools, charter schools, private and religious schools, or virtual learning online. I support the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act in Congress.

Education

As the future U.S. Senator, I don’t advocate free tuition which only shifts the burden of cost to taxpayers who are forced to comply. I do believe that free market forces without government intervention, such as government backed student loans, will force colleges and universities to align their pricing and affordability to the ability of students and families to pay.
