Congresswoman Hayes has supported a multitude of education bills and proposals that would make our classrooms safer and more equitable for students of all backgrounds, and has fought for significant increases to federal education funding to reverse the decades of chronic disinvestment in public education. The Congresswoman has introduced bills that would invest in supports for educators, increasing recruitment and retention to keep teachers in the classroom and diversifying the workforce to meet the unique needs of our communities. She continues to work to improve the quality of higher education, tackle student loan debt, advance educational equity, meet the demand for skilled workers, help public servants, and lower the cost of college.
