To Improve Education
Education is a key to economic growth and the future success of our state. Mississippi’s economic growth is closely linked to the success of our children, who deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential regardless to where they live or their family’s salary. As an ‘Advocate of Education,’ Albert is committed to investing in addressing the needs of every child from cradle to career, starting with high-quality, affordable childcare and pre-kindergarten programs and fully-funded public schools, and on to post-secondary opportunities that will lead to a lifetime of success. As your governor Albert will:
· Fully fund education
· Increase teacher pay
· Build opportunities for youth civic engagement and summer employment with the establishment of the Governor’s Youth Initiative
· Prioritize STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) afterschool programs that increase school, college or career readiness.
· Make trade schools, community colleges and universities more affordable
· Investment in affordable-quality child care for all families
