Education for All

Ayanna believes in competitive wages for our public school teachers and education justice for all our students. That’s why she has worked in partnership with the teachers’ unions to press for safe working conditions, better pay, and the respect our teachers deserve. She has introduced legislation to address head-on the barriers our students – especially Black girls – face when it comes to discrimination in our schools. 

Ayanna has worked closely with our community colleges and secured critical resources to expand access to continuing education for families in our district.

Ayanna has spent years pressing for student debt cancellation and, in partnership with Senator Warren, Congressional colleagues, and a dedicated coalition of advocates and borrowers, successfully secured Presidential action to cancel $20k for eligible Pell borrowers and $10k for borrowers across the nation.
