A good education means good jobs, good opportunities and a promising future for New Jersey’s next generation. While New Jersey’s public schools are some of the best in the country, it’s important that every student who wants to go to college has a path to plan and pay for their higher education. I’ve heard from students and parents across Burlington and Ocean Counties about the strain being able to afford college, and how student debt impacts their ability to achieve the American Dream. I’m working to make sure New Jersey’s students are ready by improving our education system and giving them the tools they’ll need to succeed every step of the way.
Check out what I’m doing to support New Jersey’s students and address education affordability:
H.R.770 — Discharge Student Loans in Bankruptcy Act of 2019
H.R.865 — Rebuild America's Schools Act of 2019
H.R.1766 — College Transparency Act
H.R.2321 — Understanding the True Cost of College Act of 2019
H.R.3950 — Remedial Education Improvement Act
H.R.4674 — College Affordability Act
