Peter Ricketts on Education

Republican Senate Challenger

 


$16 million in scholarships to connect students with careers

Connecting the next generation of Nebraskans to great opportunities in our state is key to helping our kids make Nebraska their home. I am proposing that we invest $16 million in scholarships for students at our community colleges, state colleges, and University system to help connect the next generation of Nebraskans with great careers in fields ranging from math and engineering to healthcare and IT.

Oppose the implementation of Common Core

Pete understands that we must challenge our schools to improve and set a high bar for excellence in the classroom. Pete will oppose the implementation of Common Core and believes Nebraskans are best equipped to determine the academic standards we use in Nebraska's schools.
