Amy McGrath on Education

 

 


We need a well-funded public education system

To mend the education-to-workforce pipeline, we need high-quality early education programs and a well-funded public education system. We need to coordinate education and training with organizations and individuals on the ground in our communities who know what works. We should explore subsidizing employers to provide internships for young adults from underserved communities for real, hands-on experience, to help ensure that students are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow.

National service program practical solution for college debt

Higher education costs have increased eight times faster than wages, making it impossible for many Americans to get the education they need to succeed without taking on massive high-interest loans. A national service program is a practical solution for college debt that allows young people to give back to their communities in exchange for a debt-free higher education. A national service program is an investment in our youth, our economy and our country as a whole.

Perform national service to get college aid

McGrath is against "Medicare for All" and free college tuition in a new TV pitch. "We need a senator who fights for things like affordable health care, college and technical school, not tax cuts for wealthy donors," McGrath says. "That doesn't mean free college or Medicare for All, I'm against that." Instead improve the Affordable Care Act without getting rid of private health insurance. McGrath also calls for students to perform unspecified "national service" to pay for higher education.

Pro-transgender bathrooms, according to CC survey.

McGrath opposes the Christian Coalition survey question on transgender bathrooms

The Christian Coalition inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Prohibiting Public Schools from Allowing Boys to Use Girls' Bathrooms; and Vice Versa?' Self-description by Christian Coalition of America: "These guides help give voters a clear understanding of where candidates stand on important pro-family issues" for all Senate and Presidential candidates.
