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:
- Introduced the Pell Grant Sustainability Act that would ensure Pell Grants keep up with the cost of inflation.
- Penned a letter to U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to demand that the Education Department ban the use of seclusion and restraint practices in schools that restrict student’s breathing.
- Introduced bipartisan legislation to require accreditation institutions to take action to protect students from sudden school closures.
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.
