I have a strong record of supporting education at all levels.  This includes promoting early childhood education, improving our public school system for kindergarten through 12th grade, and working to increase the affordability of higher education.  As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Education Committee, I will continue to work to ensure that Congress provides robust funding and targeted legislation for the most effective educational programs aimed at helping teachers and students succeed.

I have made engaging with Maine’s students and faculty a top priority, visiting more than 200 schools during my time as a Senator.
