Katie Porter for Congress

Education

Katie believes that quality public education is the bedrock of the American dream.

As both a mom of three kids who attend Orange County public schools and a Congresswoman, she's seen firsthand how the federal dollars she supported as part of the American Rescue Plan have been used to hire dedicated counselors in her kids' schools so that teachers can focus on teaching. That’s the focus Katie wants for every Orange County student and parent, teacher and public school. She understands how hard the past few years have been on students and their families, and is committed to supporting not just student’s academic success, but their mental health as well.

Katie supports investment in public education, expanding early childhood education, and making college more affordable so that every student who works hard can graduate from California's great public colleges and universities debt-free.

In Congress she co-founded the College Affordability Caucus to address the skyrocketing costs of higher education. This year, Katie has urged the Biden Administration to forgive student loan debt, something that wouldn’t just benefit borrowers–it would provide a much needed boost to our entire economy.
