Our state schools have consistently struggled with funding and with effectiveness. As an educator, Kendra understands that our schools need more support from Washington, and that's exactly what she will do as our representative.
The fight starts with incentivizing educators to stay in West Virginia. With people leaving the state at alarming rates, it is critical that we secure solid wages and benefits for quality teachers that can effectively educate our children so that West Virginia doesn't lose any more valuable teachers.
Kendra is also a firm supporter of affordable education beyond k-12. No one should be priced out of a higher education based on their income, and Kendra will lead the efforts in Washington to make college more affordable for West Virginians.
