Jon Ossoff on Education

 

 


Supports debt forgiveness; tuition free state schools

Q: Support free or subsidized tuition for lower-income individuals?

Ossoff: Yes. Supports debt forgiveness and making public college, state school, or trade school education "debt-free."

Perdue: No. Promises of free tuition are what "the Soviets did in Russia, the Germans did in '33," and what the Cubans and Venezuelans did.

Make trade school, vocational training, public colleges free

We need greater emphasis on vocational training. I'll work to make trade school and vocational training free for every American. I'll work to make four-year degrees at our public colleges 100% debt-free. I support a generous forgiveness program for those struggling to pay off their student loans, caps on interest rates to relieve financial stress for all borrowers, and a program that links Federal student loan payments to income so paying off student loans is never a financial hardship.

Hire great teachers, and reduce class sizes

All Georgians--all Americans--should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. We should ensure our children and young people get the best education in the world.

Jon will work in Congress to ensure our local schools get the resources they need to hire and keep great teachers, to invest in technology to keep students learning at the cutting edge, and to reduce class sizes.

Teachers should be honored, given the support and tools they need to do their best work, and paid better.

Work to make college more affordable

Jon will work to make college more affordable. Student debt shouldn't prevent young Americans from saving, investing in their careers, and reaching their potential. Jon will work to reduce the burden of student debt on young Americans.

Jon will promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education for Georgia's students and professional education to qualify young Georgians for the workforce after high school.

Pro-transgender bathrooms, according to CC survey.

Ossoff opposes the Christian Coalition survey question on transgender bathrooms

The Christian Coalition inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Prohibiting Public Schools from Allowing Boys to Use Girls' Bathrooms; and Vice Versa?' Self-description by Christian Coalition of America: "These guides help give voters a clear understanding of where candidates stand on important pro-family issues" for all Senate and Presidential candidates.
