White House hopeful Pete ButtigiegPeter (Pete) Paul ButtigiegDemocratic strategist: 'Medicare for All' exposes generational gap within party Yang expands campaign with senior hires for digital operations Biden: All-white debate not representative of party, but 'you can't dictate' nominee MORE on Saturday unveiled a new plan to expand access to public education by investing billions of dollars in federal funds into a litany of services.
The plan would work to inject billions to improve early education, bolster support for teachers and expand opportunities for students outside of the classroom.
“Too often, access to education is predicted by income or zip code. And success can be determined before a child even sets foot in a classroom,” the South Bend, Ind. mayor said.
“Every child in America should have access to high quality education, and we need to support our nation’s teachers for the work they do within and outside the classroom," he continued. "If we honored our teachers a little more like soldiers and paid them a little more like doctors, this country would be a better place.”
Buttigieg’s proposal calls for investing $700 billion to ensure universal early childcare and pre-kindergarten for children from infancy to five years old and would ensure that no family pays more than 7 percent of income in early learning costs. The South Bend mayor would also invest $10 billion to study ways to combat racial and socioeconomic bias in early education and provide $2 billion annually for workforce development.
