Sean believes that our most fundamental responsibility as a nation is to provide a world-class education for every child, regardless of race, religion, economic status, or zip code. We must commit to providing universal early childhood education and ensure that all students have access to a top-quality elementary, high school, and post-secondary education.
In Congress, Sean:
- Passed into Law his amendment to help sexual assault victims on college campuses by ensuring campus faculty are trained to recognize victims of sexual or domestic violence
- Introduced the Pell Grant Sustainability Act that would ensure Pell Grants keep up with the cost of inflation.
- Introduced bipartisan legislation to require accreditation institutions to take action to protect students from sudden school closures.
- Introduced the ESP Family Leave Act which allows education support professional to meet the hours of service requirements for family and medical leave .
We are at our best when every child has equal access to opportunity, and that requires having strong schools in every district. Sean is proud to send his children to public schools in IL-06.
