Offer free, high quality early care and education to all parents. This would have an incredible return on investment both because it lets parents be more productive workers and it supports children in becoming successful students, workers, parents, and citizens. We currently provide free K-12 education for all; it's time to extend that to infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers.
Every American Citizen should have the right to attend college for free. Post graduate degrees should offer justifiable student loans with a fixed interest rate no higher than 3.99%. This would provide the youth and families of our nation the opportunity to live and grow a decent life, and consequently create a better society.
Investing for Tomorrow's Schools Act. Authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to enter into cooperative agreements with states to establish state and multistate infrastructure banks that make loans promoting education. Requires loans also to community learning centers to connect and improve broadband services. Requires borrowers to use, to the maximum extent practicable, green construction or renovation practices.
Create infant/child daycare accessible to all. Single mothers can leave their infant in an a safe environment where during the course of the day, 2 hot meals are provided, and medical care is available if requested, including accessibility to routine vaccinations. This places the adults back into work quickly and provides children not only with an education but also to the food and medical care they require in order to learn properly in the first place
Government Doctors: Let's send the best and brightest of our youth, who demonstrate a high aptitude, the chance to become a doctor, paid for by the taxpayer. Upon completion, the new doctor must serve for 10 years at a state-mandated rate. After 10 years, the doctor is free to pursue private practice. Supply of doctors increase, so the market adjusts accordingly.
Student loan forgiveness for all seniors over 65. Too many seniors are still trying to pay off student loans that are more than 20 years old. Give seniors a break. Many have no retirement income to speak of anyway. The people who took out bad mortgages they couldn't afford in the last 10 years were given healthy "grants" to alleviate their debts. How about having Uncle Sam help seniors so they don't have to get their social security checks garnished and eat cat food!
