    3. Behavioral health

Our children need 21st century resources to prepare them for college and 21st century careers. And because children learn differently and have diverse abilities and interests, we must offer them multiple paths to success.  I am committed to providing the resources needed to strengthen our schools, close gaps in school readiness and achievement, supporting our teachers, and finding creative solutions to the problem of rising costs that are discouraging too many of our best and brightest from pursuing higher education.  I support:

  • Funding public Pre-K for all.
  • Giving teachers more professional development and planning opportunities, and peer platforms for the exchange of ideas.
  • Preparing students for college and 21st century careers through rigorous instruction in STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts and math)
  • Top quality vocational training and career certification programs incorporating expanded education partnerships with businesses and other employers
  • Improving the learning environment by modernizing facilities, relieving overcrowding and upgrading technology.
  • Making higher education more accessible by controlling costs and exploring innovative programs to finance tuition without incurring overwhelming debt.
  • Increasing investments in our community colleges and workforce training programs, to better meet the needs of both young people and older adults.

I am greatly saddened by the murder of Maryland Circuit Court Judge Andrew Wilkinson and my thoughts and prayers are with his wife, son, family, friends, and co-workers in this difficult time. I hope the alleged assailant is apprehended quickly before he can do further harm.

There are clearly many layers and policy issues for consideration based on the news reports of the circumstances and motivations. But at this time of such an acute tragedy, the Wilkinson family and community need time and space to grieve. My deepest condolences.
