Education

Mark believes education is one of the best long-term economic investments our nation can make. That's why he was proud to support the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which helped save nearly 17,000 education jobs in Michigan. Mark also voted to support a bill last year that would provide every school district in our area with resources to modernize, renovate and repair facilities to provide students with a healthier, safer, and more energy-efficient learning environment.

For families struggling to pay for college, Mark added language to the new student aid law that will cap student loan payments to 10% of a person's income - making higher education more affordable for Michigan families.

Turning our economy around won't happen overnight, but by providing our kids with a quality education, Mark is fighting to make sure our future workforce has the necessary skills to compete for 21st Century jobs.
