Education

Parents should have a choice where to spend their educational tax dollars for their children.  Children shouldn’t be forced into a poorly performing school because of their zip code.  We need to give families the power to send their children to whatever school they desire—whether public or private.  School choice creates healthy competition between schools and research shows clearly that this competition benefits our children.

Education

Re-introduce CTE training in high schools across Washington and encourage high school students to learn the trades and agricultural skillsets—especially in our farming and ranching communities.

Education

We need to bring the focus back to the basic-essentials of education based on proven-science, math, and English skills.  Open vocational and technical (CTE) programs to address the expanding demands of trade related skills and allow students to participate in running start programs to enter the work force.  We must create a two-track system to open career paths for students either seeking vocational studies or college degrees.

Jay values our teachers and he’s worked to increase educator pay more than any other state and to lower class sizes so our educators can focus on giving our children the best possible education. He has also made a commitment to recruit and retain more diverse educators in our schools.

Education

For too many, the cost of higher education is too high a burden. Jay partnered with large Washington employers such as Microsoft and Amazon to pass and fund the historic Workforce Education Investment Act, which ensures full and partial college tuition scholarships are available to working and middle-class Washingtonians.  Everyone in our state benefits from a skilled, well-prepared workforce and every child should be able to access further education and training beyond high school.
