Education

As an educator, Congresswoman Titus knows firsthand the value of a quality education and its importance not only for our children’s future, but for our nation’s future. She worked hard as a member of the Nevada State Legislature to strengthen our classrooms and will continue to build on those efforts as a member of Congress and of the House Education and Labor Committee. She is committed to expanding access to quality, affordable post-secondary education that will prepare American students to compete in a global economy.

She is also committed to expanding early childhood education and to supporting our teachers. Congresswoman Titus introduced the Tax Relief for Educators Act that will increase the amount teachers and educators can deduct from their taxes for out-of-pocket expenses they incur when teaching our nation’s students from $250 to $500 while indexing it for inflation; the measure also extends the deduction beyond K-12 classroom teachers to include other educators, such as principals, aides, and early childhood teachers.
