We live in a rapidly changing world. Methods of education from the 20th Century won't work anymore and the the rapidly increasing costs of higher education are not sustainable.
Higher Education reform was the reason that I became involved in politics in the first place. While growing up in Texas I saw how student loans and the extreme tuition costs impacted my own friends and family. I heard the chattering of people that said that someone should do something about it, so I decided to try to do something on the issue.
In Harris County GOP (the 3rd largest county and the largest GOP in the nation). I passed a resolution to cap tuition for all public universities and colleges that accept financial aid to a reasonable cap decided by the legislature.
I passed the same resolution through the Texas Young Republican Federation as well as the Young Republican National Federation.
Around that same time, I was in contact with my local House Representative Valoree Swanson who after speaking with me wrote HB 1232 which would cap upon entry for a four year degree.
In North Carolina we already have what Rep. Swanson proposed in Texas, but we still have much to improve to make going to college more affordable for the next generation.
I am also strongly in favor of School Choice coming from a homeschooled background.
